GREENSBORO, N.C. – SEAMS hosted another successful Spring Networking Conference here in September at the Grandover Resort, where they welcomed eager attendees who came to gain the latest information and insights into bringing sewn products/textile/apparel manufacturing back to the USA.
Oh, and, of course, to NETWORK – a critical part of SEAMS’ existence that puts many supply chain players in the same room together to meet, discuss issues and challenges and explore collaborative possibilities.The value of the association continues to resonate with Made-in-America stakeholders throughout the country. That is evidenced by the fact that, at the time of the meeting, 36 new members had been added this year, bringing total membership to more than 200, reported SEAMS’ Executive Director Will Duncan. “We’re really pleased with those numbers, and I want to thank all of you for that,” Duncan said during the opening session of the two-day conference. “We do a lot from our office and at trade shows and through social media, but you guys can do as much if not more than any of us. And I know many of you do. So please help us if you can. If you’re talking to people and you think they might have interest in SEAMS, please send me their information and I’ll follow up with them. We want to continue to grow and make this industry strong again.”
