March 20, 2007 guest speaker, Art Shaffer, patent attorney with the Intellectual Property Center is speaking on the process of obtaining a PATENT within one year of making application.

Art built a solid foundation for becoming a patent attorney starting with a Bachelor of Science from Kansas State, and using electrical and computer engineering principals todevelope control systems for large international projects, including the new Hong Kong Airport.

After a successful engineering career, he returned to college and earned his Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of Missouri at Kansas City, with emphasis in litigation and the protection of inventors intellectual rights.

Using his combined legal and engineering knowledge, Art has represented many small business firms, provided help in roles with the government, Fortune 500 business and wonderfully represents individual inventors and entrepreneurs with all the various legal aspects of copyrights, trademarks and patents that are needed.

Art gives back to the community in many ways, including volunteering for Service Corps of Retired Executives (SCORE), mentoring small businesses (and lucky us) as an Advisory Director of our Inventors Club of K.C.

Art is married and is the father of a darling little one year old...and that keeps him extra busy.

We are looking forward to this opportunity to learn more and hope you can join us.


So, mark your calendars ! We look forward to seeing you, C.J. Boylan
