THE ACID ADVISORY COUNCIL – SHAPING ACID’S FUTURE

tl_files/2014/acid-logo.pngACID has reached a critical time in its growth and in 2016 our primary objective was to create an ACID Advisory Council, composed of ACID members, advocates, legal affiliates and ACID representatives. We sought applications from within membership to be part of this next exciting phase and invited members, who had shown particular interest in ACID’s aims and objectives, to become part of an Advisory Council.

The new Council will provide strategic guidance in line with ACID’s mission, vision and objectives to ensure ACID’s position, as one of the leading voices for design and intellectual property in the UK, continues to grow and gain traction within IP policy making. We are determined that the credentials of ACID are maintained whilst seeking ways in which ACID broadens its remit to protect intellectual property more effectively and achieve growth for its members and the broader design community.

The Council meets bi-annually. The inaugural meeting was held on 26 May 2016 and on 2nd November a draft 2017-2020 IP Strategy was presented for discussion and debate. The next meeting is Tuesday May 16th.

We are delighted to introduce the Members of the Advisory Council below and please take the time to read the individual biographies, which give an insight into the different design areas and company structures from which our diverse membership is comprised.
