Activities and Public Relations



The Activities and Public Relations Committee provides educational, networking and outreach opportunities to BPLA members. The committee is responsible for the planning and preparation of BPLA-wide events, including the Annual Judges Dinner, the Annual Meeting, and other events. The committee also assists the BPLA President as requested.


For high-profile events, the committee assists in advertising efforts to promote the BPLA and encourages members to attend the events to stay up-to-date with the Boston intellectual property law community and changes in the law and technology.

Kristen Salvaggio, Hamilton Brook Smith Reynolds
