Thursday, March 23rd "Engineering Intellectual Property"

Intellectual property (IP) protection is absolutely critical for protecting a company's proprietary designs, processes, and inventions that, if leaked to competitors or made public, could ruin a company's market advantage and reputation or lead to costly litigation. Engineers are often on the front line of innovation. As consultants, they also share intimate details of their clients' designs, materials, products, and processes—highly confidential work. Engineers, then, are professional innovators who work in the realm of industrial property and are often the first involved in creating a proprietary design or invention.

Tammy Dunn is an IP litigator and registered patent attorney with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office with Osha Liang, L.L.P., in Houston, Texas. Ms. Dunn’s practice focuses on IP litigation and dispute resolution representing companies on the cutting edge of technology in a variety of industries and disciplines. She holds a baccalaureate in Biology from Texas Tech University and obtained her law degree from the California Western School of Law in 2003. Ms. Dunn has trial experience in a variety of complex commercial litigation cases, including first and second chair trial experience in patent litigation, copyright infringement, and trade secret misappropriation cases. Ms. Dunn’s experience includes jury trials in federal and state court, co-first chair experience in Section 337 investigations before the International Trade Commission, and advising and representing clients in mediations and arbitrations.

Thursday, April 20th "Annual Honors and Awards Banquet"

Come out and join ASME South Texas as we recognize our members and students at our annual awards banquet. The evening is the highlight of our year as we recognize the achievements of our section members. We are actively seeking nominations through April 1st, and have already received some quality nominations. Please submit the nominations to the ASME Secretary by April 1st.

In addition to the awards, we will be presenting scholarships in cooperation with the Plant Maintenance Inspection and Engineering Society. These scholarships are presented to undergraduate and graduate students at the five universities supported by South Texas. The awards banquet follows the annual PMIES Trade Show and is a great opportunity to demonstrate the importance of continued membership in ASME. We will also be recognizing our three Science and Engineering Fair of Houston awardees. These High School students will have their winning presentations on display.
