US Inventor is hosting an inventor election to choose one or more delegates to sit on the Patent Public Advisory Committee (PPAC). The PPAC is an official committee created by the United States Congress and charged with reviewing the USPTO operations and advising the Director of the USPTO.
Inventors rely on patents to protect our inventions, access capital, build businesses, and create jobs. Research and experience have proven that independent inventors and small businesses are important sources of innovation. We need trustworthy and capable advocates who will ensure that the USPTO addresses the needs and interests of inventors.
