The American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) announced it will “tweet” live from the U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation hearing to consider the nomination of Inez M. Tenenbaum to be the new chairperson of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The confirmation hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:30 AM on Tuesday, June 16, 2009.

“As communication technologies continue to evolve, we are finding new ways to effectively communicate with our members,” said AAFA President and CEO Kevin M. Burke. “Because nearly all of our members are outside the Washington beltway, using Twitter as a platform to provide real-time updates and highlights from the hearing will help keep our members and the public abreast of comments made by Ms. Tenenbaum on how she will lead the CPSC to better implement the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA).”

“Many of our members utilize social media outlets, like Twitter, to network and seek out solutions to industry problems,” said Burke. “One of the most vibrant discussions to play out in the online community over the past year revolves around product safety. Because AAFA is the leading source of helpful information on product safety for our industry, it only makes sense to provide this great information via Twitter to our members.”

In addition, AAFA has submitted questions to members of the Committee on behalf of the U.S. apparel and footwear industry. Ms. Tennenbaum's answers to these questions during the hearing will shed light on how Ms. Tennenbaum plans to address the serious CPSIA implementation and interpretation issues that currently plague the U.S. apparel and footwear industry.
