It is time to make your nominations for the HIPLA Outstanding Inventor Award!
Nominations must be received by May 10, 2019.
The Outstanding Inventor Award Committee will evaluate the nominations and choose the recipients for the award. The winners will be announced after the Committee meets in May and the winners will be invited to speak at a subsequent meeting of HIPLA. Worthy inventors can only be recognized if our members take the time to make nominations. If you nominated someone in the past and would like to renew the nomination, please identify the nomination that you would like to renew and provide any appropriate updates.
You are encouraged to emphasize the commercial success or economic importance of the invention or inventions made by your nominee.
Please send your nominations to:
Jennifer S. Sickler, Chair
Thompson & Knight LLP
811 Main St., 25th Floor
Houston, Texas 77002
Please note that the Committee expects to present the Outstanding Inventor Award at HIPLA's June 2019 meeting, which will likely take place the third full week of June (June 17-21). The Committee encourages the Nominator(s) and Nominee to be available for a lunch meeting during that time, should the Nominee be selected as Award winner.
If you have any questions about the award process, or if you are interested in serving on the Committee, please contact Jennifer Sickler at 713-653-8611. The Committee looks forward to receiving your nominations.
