ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Directors of the Textile Rental Services Association of America (TRSA) have launched a new committee structure, furthering the association’s reorganization with the Uniform & Textile Service Association (UTSA).
The new committee system has two divisions: Industry Committees and Board Committees. Industry Committees will be responsible for working on issues affecting textile service companies. Board Committees will focus on implementing bylaw directives and enhancing educational programming.
“This is a major accomplishment for TRSA and the goal of creating a single national trade association for our industry,” says TRSA President/CEO Roger Cocivera. “Under this new system, all members have an opportunity to participate in determining the direction of the association and what efforts TRSA will engage in.”
All committee seats are up for consideration, and the Board of Directors will make all committee assignments. Members interested in volunteering must apply no later than Aug. 19.
“With this new system, we return to a working, member-driven committee structure that both TRSA and UTSA utilized successfully in the past,” Cocivera says. “I hope all members will take the time and opportunity to review the new committees and consider volunteering.”
Applicants will be notified of their status no later than Aug. 27. The new committees will gather for the first time on Oct. 6-7 in Chicago during the annual TRSA Joint Committee Meeting.
