As part of the Advanced Textiles Association (ATA) member group restructuring, the former Makers Division has been reimagined as the Workforce Development Council (WDC). The goal of this group is to find solutions to the biggest problem facing the textile industry today—finding and keeping skilled employees. This group works to build and train the sewing, fabricating and manufacturing workforce across all segments of the industry along with working with the next generation of textile professionals.
The Workforce Development Council is looking for passionate ATA members to create the group’s Advisory Board. For more information, contact ATA Member Programs Manager Janelle Buerkley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
