The National Upholstery Association is launching its first strategic plan, and is inviting all trimmers to participate in the event via live webinar.
The NUA is a new organization established on March 20, 2019 to “support and advance the field of professional upholstery.” Their mission is to “inspire a rebirth of the upholstery profession as a collaborative community of artists, entrepreneurs, historians, and champions for sustainability.”
The association welcomes all upholsterers — including auto, marine, aviation, commercial and furniture.
On Thursday, NUA President Rachel Fletcher will lay out a “bold new vision for the upholstery industry” during a live-streaming event.
She will discuss the NUA’s top priorities for the next three years, which include:
- Building a resource of performance standards for the industry
- Supporting national and regional networking events
- Aligning with sustainability initiatives at scale
