AAFA announces new SCLC & PIC Committee

The American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) announced that its Supply Chain Leadership Council (SCLC) and Product Innovation Council (PIC) have merged to form a more relevant educational body comprised of industry stakeholders now known as the Supply Chain & Product Innovation Committee (SCPI). The merger took place during the joint SCLC and PIC Spring Meeting April 27 – 29 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“AAFA utilizes a valuable committee structure to identify key issues before the U.S. apparel and footwear industry,” said AAFA Vice President of Industry Relations and SCPI staff liaison Mary Howell.“With this committee merger, AAFA will be able to better understand the industry's supply chain and innovation needs in order to keep our industry competitive in the global market.”

“Through a more cohesive committee composition, the SCPI will be better equipped to advise the industry on supply chain and innovation best practices,” said SCPI Chair Andrea France, SAP. “By recalibrating and combining these committees under one mission, our industry will be better served by AAFA.”

The mission of the SCPI is to identify and disseminate information on innovation relevant to every aspect of the product cycle, from design to distribution. This includes consumer insight, design, merchandising, product development, pre-production, demand management, and the alignment of activities with sourcing and production, throughout the supply chain.

The SCPI will bring value to SCPI membership by creating opportunities for its members to interact with peer professionals and to participate in educational presentations. The SCPI will also assist, advise, and educate the AAFA in these matters involving apparel/footwear throughout the product cycle.

Officers of the expanded committee include: Chair Andrea France, SAP; Vice Chair Tim Shelton, Landau Uniform; Secretary Phil Edlin, Carhartt; Treasurer Walter Meck, Fessler USA; Membership Chair Kevin Schwartz, PRTM; and Past Chair Amanda Starling, FIDM.
