As a professional association, AATCC is run by and for textile industry professionals. Volunteer committees, and especially the officers that lead them, have been the driving force behind all that AATCC does for the past 100 years.
Thank you to all who work on the administrative and research committees! And special thanks to the outgoing officers, some of whom have served multiple terms and some who have already agreed to stay on for an additional term.
