Patents Customer Partnership Meetings

Patents Customer Partnership Meetings (CPM) provide a valuable opportunity for our external stakeholders to meet directly with United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) representatives in a collaborative forum. At these meetings, we share plans and operational efforts to better educate and inform our stakeholders.
