Welcome to the New Website

Welcome to HIPLA’s new website!  Take a look around and let us know what you think.  It is a work in progress and all comments are appreciated. While you are here, please update your profile in our system (or renew if your membership has expired).  Our new site includes an expanded list of practice areas that is searchable by folks looking for IP legal assistance.
 

We’ve expanded our calendar.  It now includes other IP events in our community as well as upcoming HIPLA events.  If you are aware of an event that we’ve missed, or have an IP event in our area that you would like to add, let us know by emailing the HIPLA secretary.

We are looking to expand our photos section.  If you have any photos of past HIPLA events, we’d love to post them! Please send them to our website committee chair and include a description and year of the event when they were taken.  

We are also looking for additional committee members who’d like to be more involved in HIPLA.  If you are interested in participating on a committee, please drop Keana an email.

In order to make it easier for members to connect with one another via Facebook, we have decided to shut down the HIPLA private Facebook group and instead move everything to a Community page.  Please make sure to go to click on the link below to access our new page.  Once there, please like and follow the page so that you don’t miss important updates and announcements!

Thanks for taking a look around our new website and I hope to see you at the next HIPLA luncheon!
