Benefits

Member Benefits Include:

NAPP Members-only E-mail Discussion Forums

Only current NAPP members are allowed access to the forums.  Members can post to these forums questions, thoughts and answers about intellectual property rules, theory and procedures, operating a patent practitioner business, recommendations on products, etc.  Many NAPP members with years of experience participate in these forum discussions.  The forums are a great resource for new patent practitioners just embarking on a new career path.

The forums are also a wonderful resource for experienced patent practitioners who need to verify their understandings of rules and procedures or who wish to engage in discussions of complicated patent topics.  The forums provide members an opportunity to share knowledge with peers, an activity which leads to both new and old NAPP members developing and strengthening relationships in the NAPP community.  

NAPP offers two e-mail discussion forums that enable members to interact with each other on a daily basis:

  • Our NAPP Patent Practice Forum is focused on patent prosecution issues only. 

  • Our NAPP General Discussion Forum enables members to discuss other issues such as member-to-member referrals, legislative issues and non-patent prosecution matters.
