Final Farewell

After three decades of dedicated service as a non-profit organization, we have made the difficult choice to cease operations as of Feb. 29, 2024. This decision was not made lightly, but with so few new and renewed memberships and attendance since COVID, and after much consideration, we believe it is the right step forward for our beloved community.

Throughout our 30-year journey, we have achieved remarkable milestones together, supporting budding inventors like yourselves in every step of the invention process. From learning the intricacies of inventing to protecting, manufacturing, selling, and licensing inventions, we have been honored to be a part of your entrepreneurial endeavors. The impact of our collective efforts in fostering innovation and creativity within the Arizona inventor community is truly something to be proud of.

Beyond the professional growth, we have cherished the opportunity to build meaningful connections and friendships with each of you. The camaraderie and support network that have flourished within our association has been invaluable, and we are deeply grateful for the moments of collaboration, inspiration, and friendship that we have shared over the years.

To all of you who ever attended or joined our group over the last 30 years, we thank you for your participation and wish you well in all your invention endeavors!

Bring your ideas to market With help from the best.

Very blessed I discovered the IAA before spending more money and wasting more time working with companies who falsely claimed they could help! With the help, guidance, and education I received here from fellow IAA members who went through the ups and downs of similar journeys as inventors, I patented my product and now manufacturing it.

Joining the association was one smart move.  They help us inventors connect with very experienced professionals that know their business.  In my case, I wanted to make sure I was on the right track for making sure my product patent was well presented.  That helps save time and time is money with needing legal assistance.   The group is also the perfect support group for inventors.  The road inventors’ travel is extensive and ever-changing.  Having others who have gone through the challenges is a great resource for help.

We only wish we would have found IAA sooner. It would have saved us time, energy & money. We appreciate how far we have been able to come, due to their innovative spirit, creativity & motivation. Forever grateful… CITS Team!!

The IAA has been instrumental to me in several areas: I have made invaluable contacts and relationships with other members. I have cultivated many ideas for my start-up by getting feedback in the forums. The guest speakers always bring multitudes of ideas and suggestions to the table. To simply be around other like-minded inventors is such an advantage as they are in the same proverbial boat as I am and can help in many ways with a free exchange of ideas.
