Every day, policy decisions are made in Washington, D.C. that affect the day-to-day operations of the apparel and footwear industry, touching every aspect of our businesses. I cannot emphasize enough the importance of political engagement on key policy issues. AAFA members can help shape those decisions by getting involved in the AAFA Trade Policy Committee."

There’s no question that public policy continues to have an impact on the apparel and footwear industry.
