AIPPI at the AIPLA Annual Meeting – October 2015

AIPPI President Felipe Claro and Executive Director John Bochnovic attended, as invited guests, the AIPLA Annual Meeting in Washington (October 22-24). Deputy Reporter General John Osha, as a member of AIPLA and AIPPI-U.S., and Cinzia Petruzzello, Office Manager of the General Secretariat and Meeting Planner for AIPPI, also attended.

AIPPI-U.S. held its Annual Meeting on October 23 under Chair Philip Swain, followed by a cocktail reception. After a successful membership drive during the last few years, AIPPI-U.S. now has almost 600 members and is in the exciting early stages of planning for the 2021 Congress in San Francisco.

The meeting provided the first opportunity for the Executive Directors of AIPPI, AIPLA and IPO (Intellectual Property Owners Association) to meet (see photo).
