I've blogged multiple times about the 2011 America Invents Act and how it will affect the U.S. patenting system. Now, those of us in or near Boise will be able to learn about the Act from someone inside the Patent Office. Azam Khan, Deputy Chief of Staff of the USPTO, will be speaking at an event (link) on Wednesday, June 20.

The event is titled "Making Business Easier - Improving Access to Capital & Protecting Intellectual Property" and will also feature Patrick Kelley, a senior advisor with the U.S. Small Business Administration. The meeting will go from 7:30 am to 9:00 am and will be held at the Grove Hotel in Downtown Boise.
