Dear ACPC Member,

The Association of Corporate Patent Counsel has a rich history of building a strong national network of Chief Corporate Patent Counsel and providing forums for networking and professional education. As much of the world is changing and responding to new environments, so is our association.

ACPC continues to offer its brand of unique professional programs, valuable benchmarking studies, and intentional opportunities for networking and national and regional connections. In addition, ACPC has grown in the following key areas:

  • expanded its offerings to include more virtual programs and meetings;
  • increased it use of technology to connect and engage members and leaders in our field;
  • established a diversity and inclusion committee to keep ACPC at the forefront of matters related to diversity and inclusion in our profession and social injustice and equity;
  • conducted more surveys to acquire member input on the direction of ACPC and member needs and interests; and
  • continues to take a critical look at opportunities for local and special interest engagement.

Our members make the difference in everything we do. For that, I thank each of you for being a part of ACPC, sharing your ideas, and participation in our professional programs.

Our national network is a terrific resource of professional experience and knowledge. I wish you continued success, and hope your connection with ACPC has made a difference in some way.
