Announcement Description

Dear Trade Secret Law Committee Members,
On behalf of the Subcommittee Members, we want to welcome you to the annual meeting.  For those of you who were able to attend the Trade Secret Law Summit, this week has started off with fantastic programming.  The Agenda is below in case you were unable to attend and would like to see the panel sessions.  Content will be posted soon. 
Our committee is scheduled to hold our bi-monthly meeting on Thursday at 4:30 pm-5:30 pm in the McKinley room, Mezzanine Level (Wardman Park Marriott Hotel, Washington DC).  Here is a the agenda: 
1.   Recap of the Trade Secret Summit – As you will hear, Peter Toren, Warrington Parker and Seth Hudson did a tremendous job in organizing the Summit, locating excellent speakers and providing excellent content on very short notice.  We are planning on putting together a survey that we will send to the Committee for its input on what we can do to expand the Summit’s reach next year.
2.     Planning for upcoming Mid-Winter Institute – we are looking for volunteers to help promote our Committee at the upcoming Institute, which will have an “Expo” highlighting the various committees
3.   Planning for 2013 Spring Meeting – Update on programming and ideas for possible CLE for Committee Meeting.
4.   Discussion of pending federal legislation and role, if any, Committee should have in legislation.
5.   Upcoming Online Programming – looking for volunteers for the “brown bag” CLE series.
6.    Reports from Subcommittee Chairs.
7.    Nominations and volunteers for 2014 Subcommittee Chairs and Vice Chairs – We have been blessed with an outstanding group of Subcommittee Chairs and Vice-Chairs but their terms are about to expire.  We are looking for volunteers or nominations for Vice Chairs and Chairs, as well as ideas for different subcommittees.  If anyone is interested, please let us know. 
8.   Creation of New Subcommittees – We are considering creating a Digital Forensics Subcommittee and would welcome any ideas for new subcommittees.
9.   Ideas for improvement of Committee – We want to discuss how we can do a better job of attracting in-house counsel as members and for leadership positions.  While the contributions of our outside counsel members have been tremendous, we want to have the balance and perspective of our in-house counsel members.  Any ideas or thoughts on more effectively recruiting and/or making our Committee more productive for in-house members would be greatly appreciated.  We would welcome any other ideas for the good of the Committee.
Unfortunately, AIPLA is not able to accommodate a teleconference call.  However, we will follow-up with another teleconference call in a week or so to update everyone on this meeting as well as to report out on this week’s Annual Meeting and 2nd Annual Trade Secret Law Committee Summit.
Thank you,
Janet Craycroft (Chair) & John Marsh (Vice Chair)
