“The director of member relations is a new position and important to INDA’s strategic objective of growing membership across all of the nonwoven verticals,” says Dave Rousse, INDA’s president. “This new role will allow us to significantly increase our direct engagement with industry members, and use that point of view to shape INDA program and event content to better serve all industry sectors. Morris has the personal and professional skills to do this and we are excited about his decision to join INDA.”

In my new role I’ll be listening, serving members and providing a “voice of the customer” to assist in INDA’s program planning. I know from my own experience the value of INDA to the industry and look forward to conveying this to prospective new members,” says Collins.
