Government Relations


All year, USINFI works to advocate for the industry. This includes coordinating an annual Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill along with keeping members informed with Action Alerts and other reports. Please see below for issue backgrounders from past Hill visits along with other materials to stay up to date on the issues.

USINFI holds a trip to Washington D.C. annually to lobby and advocate on behalf of its members. For more information on the Government Relations program, or the next scheduled Advocacy Day, please contact Division Manager Janelle Buerkley at janelle.buerkley@textiles.org.
