The D.C. Chapter, formerly the East Coast Chapter, formed in 2014 as one of the first ChIPs chapters! It connects nearly 200 members who gather for events focused on networking, professional development, legal education and more. The chapter is proud to collaborate with BEACON on its Startup Law 101 event for women entrepreneurs and to co-host the annual Haute Tech event in New York. Events are open to all active members of the ChIPs Network. It hosts at least one event each quarter.
