Consumer Products Committee

The Consumer Products Industry Committee is an LESI Industry Committee that serves as the focal point for the members of the consumer products industries.


The mission of the Consumer Products Industry Committee is to promote licensing in the consumer products industries, including branded products, by, inter alia, promoting networking among its members, sponsoring appropriate educational activities such as workshops, lectures, and seminars and identifying and collaborating on problem areas of concern to, and major new developments in, these industries.
