Industrial Fabrics Association International Announces New Leadership For Military Division

In my opinion, IFAI is the most influential industry association for the textile business. It is well organized and works with its members as well as government to promote the health and awareness of the industry. Of particular importance to the Soldier Systems arena is the Military Division which works to promote Berry compliant capability.

During their recent expo in Dallas, Texas, they announced leadership changes for the Military Division.

According to a press release, these are the changes:

Leaving his term as chair of the board, Nick Rivera of MMI Textiles is stepping into the role of immediate past chair. Former vice chair Jennifer Fennell of Polo Custom Products will now serve as the chair, and Jeff Papalia of National Industries for the Blind will move to vice chair. Two new board members were also announced for their first three-year terms: Geoff Senko of MMI Textiles and Peter Raneri of HLC Industries.

Several of those names are well known to me and I know they will do a great job. Congratulations!
