Young Textile Professionals

Our Mission is to bring together industry leaders to support textile evolution and sustainability while making an impact on our local communities. We strive to bridge young talent and tradition to develop the next generation of successful professionals through networking, hosting social and educational events, and coordinating community outreach opportunities.

Objectives:
• Create networking opportunities for textile professionals that are 40 and under.
• Create opportunities to partner with industry veterans (mentors) to develop knowledge and skills.
• Work with ITA and the Educational Foundation to recruit and provide support for young talent.
• Educate member companies on the importance of investing and developing the next generation of leadership for their companies and assist ITA with providing those resources.
• Help businesses understand how millennials are changing the markets.
