Meetings

The meetings of the Rocky Mountain Inventors Association are educational and networking opportunities. The format varies somewhat depending on the moderator. These meetings are open to the public. Unless noted otherwise, meetings are free for members of RMIA, and $15 for nonmembers to attend a meeting.   Snacks and drinks are provided at no extra charge at meetings. 

These meetings are facilitated by the most experienced members of the organization and a patent attorney is usually present to address legal issues. Other members in attendance often include marketing professionals, manufacturers, prototypers, fulfillment companies and others who are often able to answer questions and present opportunities, wherein a speaker typically gives a one-hour presentation with a question & answer session on a topic of interest to inventors.
