This isn't the sexiest part of our diversity initiative, but it's essential nonetheless. "IP Inclusive Management" is the body that oversees work done under the IP Inclusive banner. It's responsible for our bank account and for our legal and regulatory compliance. It signs off our plans and budgets and liaises with third parties on behalf of the wider IP Inclusive community.
It's a small, committee-like body and its current members (appointed at the AGM which took place on 23rd January 2018), are:
• CIPA, represented by Andrea Brewster (Chair) and Lee Davies;
• CITMA, represented by Keven Bader and Richard Goddard;
• FICPI-UK, represented by Liz Dawson (Treasurer);
• IP Federation, represented by Carol Arnold (Secretary); and
• Michael Silverleaf QC.
From now on, IP Inclusive Management will meet every month, and in the interests of transparency and accountability, we will publish the minutes of those meetings here on the IP Inclusive website. So, below you can find the minutes from the most recent meeting on 15th March 2018, together with a copy of the association's formal constitution for the record.
