INTA-USPTO Roundtable
St. Louis, Missouri

Join key USPTO officials, including Group Director Meryl Hershkowitz, at a breakfast roundtable discussion.

Wednesday, November 20, 2013
St. Louis, Missouri

The roundtable is designed to help the USPTO better understand the needs of those using its services and to offer insights into the USPTO operations.

Topics include:

  • Recent developments at the USPTO. (e.g., performance and quality results, post-registration specimen pilot, electronic Official Gazette, TTAB metrics)
  • Customer suggestions for improvements
  • End-to-end electronic processing
  • Practice tips

This unique opportunity to get to know the USPTO should not be missed.

To preserve the desired interactive format at each roundtable, attendance is limited to the first 25 people to register. Upon reaching capacity, a waiting list will be created. If a seat becomes available, you will be contacted immediately. Registrants are also invited to send no more than two questions in advance to ensure there is sufficient time to address them during the roundtable. Please send your questions to Craig Morris at by November 15, 2013.

Note: This is not a forum to discuss individual cases
