If elected Northeast Regional Coordinator, I plan to:
1. Serve as an active and contributing member of the Executive Board and Executive Committee.
2. Support the FLC NE Regional Awards program and the FLC National Awards program by promoting those programs in the region. Actively encourage our labs to submit quality nominations in all the categories.
3. Increase efforts of collaboration and cooperation between laboratories, universities and companies in the region by visiting and educating them about the FLC and the capabilities and technologies available at the laboratories.
4. Support the education of the regional TT personal through the encouragement of informative programs at the regional meetings by knowledgeable experts in various subject matter areas such as patent law, TT policies, cyber issues, etc.
5. Encourage the participation of non-active laboratories or minimally active laboratories in FLC activities by networking at regional and national FLC meetings.
6. Help establish relationships with local special interest groups like research universities, economic development organizations, etc., particularly in the State of NJ.
