Education & Training Committee

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. 

To deliver this promise to our members, we launched our Education & Training Committee in January 2016 with the dual purpose of providing guidance on USFIA’s educational activities, as well as improving educational opportunities for the broader industry.

This committee is co-chaired by a Brand/Retailer Member and Associate Member, and includes volunteers representing our members' vast interests. 

Committee Composition: Representatives from USFIA Brand, Retailer, Importer, & Associate Members
