LES Thailand is an umbrella organization for the 32 national and regional LES Member Societies.
LES Thailand is a professional society for people interested in the licensing of technology and intellectual property. Its membership is drawn from a wide range of disciplines and organizations. An important feature of LES Thailand is that it brings together people from different backgrounds, cultures and industries. Hands-on Licensing practitioners, academicians, lawyers and consultants, from industry, university, public bodies and professional firms are all welcome.
To become a member of LES Thailand it is necessary to join one of the LES Thailand Member Societies.
Once a member, you will be entitled to attend any local meeting of any of the 32 LES Member Societies. There are also international meetings, such as the Pan-European meeting, the Pan-Asian meeting and the LES Thailand Annual Conference, national meetings, such as the LES USA/Canada Annual Meeting, and meetings and webinars organized by the various LES Thailand Committees, such as the LES Thailand Life Sciences Committee, the LES Thailand Electronics, IT and Telecoms Committee and the LES Thailand Industry, University and Government Transactions (IUGT) Committee.
As an LES Thailand member, you will also receive “les Nouvelles”, the Quarterly publication of LES Thailand that features articles, commentaries and reviews on licensing, technology and intellectual property, as well as news concerning activities of LES Thailand and its Member Societies. There are also publications concerning licensing of technology and IP that can be purchased from LES Thailand and from various of the Member Societies. Many Member Societies also furnish their members regular newsletters.
You will also have full online access to the LES Thailand Website, including the members directory.
LES Thailand also has 13 Industry, Professional and Regional Committees that bring together members who have a particular interest in the licensing of technology and IP in a specific industry or region or in the licensing of a specific type of IP. These Committees organize many activities ranging from providing content for LES Thailand meetings worldwide, liaising with public bodies and other professional societies, providing networking receptions and opportunities, researching and analyzing licensing issues, producing educational materials and events to promote knowledge of licensing, and making submissions to legislative bodies and other organizations, such as the European Commission, in relation to licensing matters and organizing “IP weekends” for scientists and students wherein educational programs are supplemented by social and networking activities.
LES Thailand actively encourage all members to contact those committees and get involved with, and participate in, their activities.
If you have a personal interest in licensing, or if your business livelihood depends on it, you will benefit from membership of the Licensing Executives Society.
