On Friday, December 3, 2010 the Las Vegas technical societies including ASME, AACE, ANS, and HPS joined together to bring celebrate the holiday season. Our featured speaker was Mr. John Slitz, a serial entrepreneur and established high-tech executive. We spent the evening learning about his adventures as a Venture Capitalist, Senior Vice President of Corporate Marketing at Novell, and a Senior Executive at IBM. John also delved into lessons learned dealing with intellectual property, both how to define it and how to protect it. From the resounding applause the audience thoroughly enjoyed his presentation.
As is customary at the winter dinner, the evening was full of friends, food, door prizes, and pies! Thank you to John, The Cellar Lounge, and our event organizers Bradford and Dixie. We here at the ASME Silver State Section hope to see you next year.
