Thank you to everyone who attended the East Coast Chapter’s inaugural Summer Happy Hour!

More than seventy-five ChIPsters from government, industry and private practice gathered in Washington, DC last Tuesday evening for the inaugural East Coast Chapter Summer Happy Hour. Organized by Chapter Co-Chairs Karin Norton (Vice President and Senior Counsel, Samsung Electronics) and Kathi Cover (Vice President – Intellectual Property, DTS, Inc.), the happy hour provided an opportunity to enjoy a beautiful summer evening networking and catching up with friends and colleagues. A special thanks goes out to i Ricchi, a woman owned and operated restaurant, for hosting the event. Christine Ricchi and her staff served up sparkling cocktails and fresh-from-the-garden hors d’oeuvres on the gracious outdoor patio. The East Coast Chapter looks forward to hosting another event soon.
