Mission Statement
 
To assist, disseminate and promote services, education and networking opportunities to independent inventors.
 
Founded in early 2004 our chapter has made continued strides in sharing information resources to both amateur and seasoned inventors and continues promoting individual inventors.
 
We welcome all individuals and parties whom share the goal in further promoting an Iowa based resource for inventors and product assimilation. Meetings are typically held every 2nd Monday of the month. Meetings are free and dress is casual.
 
Our typical meeting will include a guest speaker and they will speak on a variety of topics that are of interest to inventors. Past speakers include patent attorneys and prototype makers. After the speaker talks we always open it up for question and answers so the attendees can ask their specific questions. We then have a short business meeting. See below for meeting schedule

Speaker
Patent Attorney Mark David Torche
I have been a practicing attorney for over 15 years with a background in science and engineering. I taught high school physics for many years before going to law school at Drake in Des Moines. We got 18 patents issued last year and 12 so far this year. We have also filed many trademark applications.

Will speak about-

What is the purpose of a patent search? Many people advise you to get a search, but what are the real reasons for the search and what can you expect to get out of a search? If your search report comes back positive, are you guaranteed to get a patent? What happens if you get a negative search report? Can you go ahead with the invention anyway? Will you infringe?
And will answer your questions.
