A special thanks to guests and members who have shared their knowledge and experience with the Inventors Network of the Capital during our monthly meetings. See our Recent Meetings page for details on our previous speakers.

We are always on the lookout for new speakers. If you would like to speak, or know someone who might be interested in speaking, please let us know by contacting one of our officers today. Our members are interested in the topics in the list below. Also let us know what subjects are of interest to you.

If you are speaking at one of our upcoming meetings please note the following. Meetings are attended by thirty to forty people. We have a projector, laptop with MS Office, and wireless internet access you can use during your presentation. Use our laptop or use your own for your presentation. If you use our laptop bring your presentation on a thumb drive or CD. Attendees appreciate having print copies of presentations (Power Point, etc.) for note taking. An electronic copy of your presentation sent after you speak can be posted to our website or sent via our Google Group for future reference. Members also like receiving a business card from presenters. We will also keep one of your business cards in a binder for reference at future meetings.
