So the United Inventors Association is under new management. A go-getter by the name of Patrick Raymond is now the executive director. We're running his op-ed piece in our March issue, where he unveils the UIA's new certification program.
We'd like to kick the tires on this program in more detail in an upcoming issue. Check out the particulars of the certification program here: http://www.uiausa.org/Default.aspx?page=279
It's generating some controversy. I've heard from some that the questionnaire is too invasive. One guy I know called it "a shake down." Others say it's a great step in the right direction and something the UIA should have been doing all along.
If you have an opinion on this, we'd like to hear it and perhaps include your comments in the magazine.
