Government Relations Committee
The Government Relations Committee serves as the principal “eyes and ears” for AAFA on trade and other legislative and regulatory matters at national and international levels. It directs lobbying and advocacy responses for matters affecting the U.S. apparel and footwear industry. It advises the Board and Executive Committee on policy positions. A confidentiality agreement is required for participation on the committee.
"In the current times of rapidly evolving trade policy, the Government Relations Committee is a vital link to meetings with key agencies and staffers in Washington to stay on top of key trade issues impacting our supply chains. We also work to express the voice of the AAFA to members of Congress and the Administration during scheduled lobby days and through the tireless activities of the AAFA staff. If staying on top of legislative issues is important to you and your company, I encourage you to participate in the GR Committee."
