I will not, as an individual, or as a representative of any company or corporation, in any way, make, use sell, divulge, duplicate, or capitalize on any idea or invention that is not mine.  I understand the necessity to keep all ideas, concepts or inventions confidential, without first obtaining a signed, written approval from the original inventor.

I promise to hold NIA, its trustees, officers, and directors harmless from any such unauthorized use by me, or any unauthorized use of my property, information, and ideas by other members of NIA. 

My membership fee shall be paid in full on or before I attend any "closed-door" session.
