This meeting constitutes my additional efforts as the Greater Washington, DC Chapter Chair to promote the organization and otherwise help the IP profession and practitioners with practical programs.  For those in DC, Virginia and Maryland, please feel free to contact me if you have a speaker in mind or a topic that needs addressing. With the eclectic wants of the Greater DC membership, we have seen it all, and welcome more!  For those outside of the DC Metro area, thanks for reading about us!
