NATIONAL - The Women in IP Committee of the American Intellectual Property Law Association (AIPLA) is proud to have hosted their 3rd Annual Cross-Country Networking Dinners. The 23 simultaneous cross-country networking dinners took place on Thursday, February 11, 2010 and were attended by over 800 IP professionals. “The dinners are important events because they provide female IP professionals working in different settings an excellent opportunity to meet with one another.  Ultimately, the goal is to establish a broad network of colleagues so that women working in IP can help to advance each other's careers,” noted Hathaway Russell of Foley Hoag LLP, who served as the Chair of the Women in IP Committee’s Networking Dinner.

Each of the dinners was linked by a teleconference for a welcome by AIPLA’s President, Alan Kasper, and the chairs of the Women in IP Law Committee, Carey Jordan of McDermott Will & Emery LLP and Alyson Barker of Howrey LLP. Additionally the attendees logged on to the social networking site, Twitter, to “tweet” about the discussions at their dinners by using #womeninip.
