NCTO To Participate In AAPN Annual Meeting

The American Apparel Producers’ Network (AAPN), Atlanta, has invited members of the Washington-based National Council of Textile Organizations (NCTO) to participate in its upcoming annual meeting, Sept. 13-15, 2006, focusing on the man-made fiber apparel supply chain of the United States and the Central America-Dominican Republic Free Trade Agreement region. The meeting will be held at the Watermark Hotel in San Antonio.

According to Mike Todaro, AAPN managing director, the collaboration was “unusual” because AAPN is apolitical and NCTO has a political agenda. “But, our meetings with the usual industry organizations produce only usual results,” he explained. “So by going to a national organization of fiber, yarn and fabric producers — one we’ve never worked with before, we’re trying something different.”

“This is an unprecedented opportunity for US textile manufacturers to sit down at the table with apparel manufacturers and retailers to develop new business, personal relationships, and the necessary business infrastructure for an integrated supply chain,” said Mike Hubbard, vice president, NCTO.

AAPN members and nonmembers may register for the meeting at www.aapnetwork.net/Content/121.htm.
