INTA is a global association of trademark owners and professionals dedicated to supporting trademarks and related intellectual property in order to protect consumers and to promote fair and effective commerce. These committees were established to make policy recommendations to the Board of Directors, undertake short-term and long-term assignments to execute the Strategic Plan and, generally, to carry out the work of the Association. They represent, involve, and serve the Association’s members and provide an important training ground for INTA’s future leaders.
