ATA launches Leadership Academy

Events | November 1, 2023 | By:

Advanced Textiles Association (ATA) has launched the ATA Leadership Academy, an initiative set to reshape leadership excellence within the textile industry. This comprehensive leadership development program is designed to offer advanced training to professionals across all levels, with training options for ATA member companies of all sizes.

The ATA Leadership Academy exemplifies the Association’s commitment to fostering industry innovation and progress. The first partner in this initiative is the Center for Creative Leadership (CCL), which will provide participants with opportunities for well-rounded learning experiences. CCL is recognized as a top-ranked global provider of leadership development and a pioneer in the field of global leadership research. ATA members will receive a 5% discount off any applicable CCL program.

“Having experienced many leadership development programs over the course of my career, I feel that it is an important benefit that our association offers to its members to continue to develop team members,” says Amy Bircher, president/owner of MMI Textiles Inc. and ATA Board of Directors chairman.

“I had the opportunity to participate in CCL’s Leadership Development Program a couple of years ago,” says Steve Schiffman, president and CEO of ATA. “It was timely and inspiring, and I leverage the insights and tools learned there nearly every day. My group consisted of leaders from companies of all sizes and the content was relevant to all of us. I highly recommend taking advantage of their offerings. Worth every penny.”
