In order to engage with as many professionals and students across the disciplines of textiles, the vision for the AATCC California section is to be founded by 7 Pillars: Color Perception; Laboratory Testing; Regulatory/Compliance; Chemical Applications; Sustainability; Technology/Wearable Electronics; and Education/Student Engagement

All of the pillars have the same 4 objectives:

Research: To encourage in any practical way, research work on textile design and coloration, chemical processes, and materials of importance to the textile industry.
Communication: To establish for the members channels by which the interchange of professional and technical knowledge among them may be increased.
