Working on the issues that matter to our industry
Flushability is only one of the issues in which INDA is actively engaged on behalf of the nonwoven/engineered fabrics industry. To learn more about our efforts visit our Flushability page.
On the world of issues that could affect our industry, INDA is well represented on Capitol Hill with Jessica Franken, INDA’s Director of Government Affairs, who has more than a decade of professional government relations/public policy experience. Her experience spans several positions on Capitol Hill and many years of work with industry association clients including INDA, Association of the Nonwoven Fabrics Industry, as well as groups representing recycled textiles, pharmaceutical printing and healthcare packaging industries.
Franken has acted as a primary policy liaison/advocate between clients and state, federal and international officials on a diverse array of issues. They include the environment, consumer product safety, international trade, tax, healthcare, homeland security, chemicals, manufacturing, and labor/workplace policy.
She currently represents INDA as an appointed advisor to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Industry Trade Advisory Committee for Textiles and Apparel (ITAC-13), is an active member in a number of textile industry and general business coalitions and is a frequent speaker on governmental issues of interest to her clients.
INDA also has a host of action-oriented member based committees to ensure our collective voice is heard on issues that matter to our industry. To find out more about these committees visit our Committees page.
