Your Board Can Help You

Here at Inventor's Network
we take pride in the concept of
helping our members network with each other
and we strive to create networking possibilities
in the Inventor sphere.

Networking can be described as
the gathering of individuals
for the purpose of sharing ideas,
concepts, experiences and advice
as well as it being a mechanism
to find answers to questions within the subject,
in our case "Inventing."
Your Board of Directors
encourages you to

seek connections within our organization
to learn as well as share.
Our board is available to answer your questions and
you can contact them by
going to the lower right section of this page and
clicking on their name.

Below are their areas of expertise.
