Leadership Meeting

November 19–22, 2019
Fairmont Austin Hotel
Austin, Texas

The Leadership Meeting brings together INTA volunteers and leaders once a year to advance the Association’s objectives and goals. This meeting offers registrants an advanced-level educational program and the opportunity to conduct business and network with colleagues from around the world over four days in an amazing location. INTA is excited to bring the Leadership Meeting to Austin, Texas for the first time—“Live Music Capital of the World” and home to some of the best BBQ in America.

The programming will feature a double track of concurrent programs in the afternoons––giving you more opportunities to find subject matter with takeaways for your own practice. The expanded programming has enabled a larger category of programs, encompassing substantive content and skills for in-house and private practice lawyers and brand owners. The many sessions being offered will address the cutting-edge issues of trademark law, including, but not limited to: the latest AI tools available to run your business, issues relating to the emerging industry of cannabis, Free Trade Zones, and Online Counterfeiting, as well as deeper dives into design patent and copyright issues. The program also feature two highlight sessions where the audience will hear directly from C-Suite level speakers from Ogilvy and South by Southwest (SXSW). And back for its second year will be the INTA Influencers session which gives dedicated association leaders the opportunity to share their passions and personal experiences with their peers. 

Registrants will also have the opportunity to register for exclusive executive workshops developed and presented by the Center for Executive Development at the Mays Business School at Texas A&M University, as well as a CSR initiative at the Central Texas Food Bank which will give volunteers an opportunity to give back to the local community while working with fellow registrants.

Don’t miss this exciting program and your opportunity to wrap up your committee work for the term and plan for the next committee term. Be sure to register on or before Friday, September 6 to receive the Early Bird discount. 

The Leadership Meeting is by invitation only to:

2018–2019 Committee Members, Chairs and Vice Chairs, Subcommittee Members, Current and Incoming Board of Directors and Counsel, Past Presidents and Past Counsel, Current Project Teams, and staff from government IP offices, as well as incoming 2020–2021 Committee Members.
