The United States Fashion Industry Association (USFIA) is dedicated to the education and training of the industry, to ensure our members have access to the most current information and best practices as well as the continued success of their companies and individuals’ career growth potential. In a period of marked lack of skilled labor, especially in supply chain, global trade, logistics, and customs management, it is important to offer this additional benefit of membership.
In January 2016, we launched our Education & Training Committee with the dual purpose of providing guidance on USFIA’s educational activities, as well as improving educational opportunities for the broader industry. The committee is currently co-chaired by Macy’s Merchandising Group and PwC.
In May 2018, NCBFAA Educational Institute (NEI) and the United States Fashion Industry Association (USFIA) launched an innovative new online course, Apparel 101, which provides an overview of import basics and responsibilities for apparel import specialists. Click here for more details.
