INDA Implements Changes To ITAB Structure

November 29, 2005

INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, has announced that its International Trade Advisory Board (ITAB) has adopted a new leadership structure and succession plan to formalize the process for selecting its future leaders. The new structure calls for the ITAB to have two co-chairs who must be from different segments of the nonwovens value chain. The change will allow the board to better achieve its goal of representing the interests of primary component manufacturers, roll goods producers and converters.

Other key features of the new ITAB Leadership Structure/Succession Plan include: two-year staggered terms for the co-chairs without term limits, recommendations from INDA staff regarding future co-chair appointments with final decisions requiring the advice and consent of the entire ITAB as well as the right to amend the system as needed.

ITAB Chairman Gonzalo Castro of CardinalHealth said, "Over the last few years, the U.S. has pursued an ambitious international trade agenda that has resulted in a rapidly-evolving global economic environment. This new leadership structure helps to ensure that the ITAB will be able to react to any trade-related developments and be more proactive in our activities.”
