The March Chapter Meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 at the Doubletree Guest Suites in Plymouth Meeting, PA. The Board of Directors will meet at 5:30 pm; all ASA members are welcome. The general meeting starts at 6:30. The guest speaker will be Patrick M. Brady III, a Registered Patent Attorney at SnyderLAW LLC in Wayne PA (and former Lead Mechanical Engineer at Lockheed Martin). Mr. Brady will talk about “Patent Opinions and Prosecution” (and maybe “Rocket Science”).
Mr. Brady earned a JD at Temple’s Beasley School of Law (2001) and before that an MSME in Structural Mechanics and Dynamics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (1990). As a patent attorney, he counsels clients about intellectual property protection, including patentability opinions, due diligence, trademark prosecution, trade secrets and guidance relative to copyright filings. But he is equally comfortable talking about mechanical devices, mechanisms, composite materials, structures and electronic packaging, and he has a general understanding of software, electrical, materials and processes. And he is knowledgeable about service and employment contracts as well as corporate and partnership formation.
Mr. Brady’s presentation is sure to be of interest to ASA members in all disciplines. As seating for this talk is limited, please register early for this educational and productive evening which qualifies for 2 hours credit toward ASA reaccreditation.
Dinner is $35 per person for members and guests.
