A Bold Vision for the Future of Upholstery is Here
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Ashburn, VA, February 24, 2020-The National Upholstery Association (NUA) will present its first strategic plan on March 12, 2020 at 1:00 pm EST in a webinar hosted by NUA President, Rachel Fletcher. Ready to grow the American upholstery labor market, the plan lays out a roadmap to rebuild a skills training infrastructure. The NUA looks to form strong partnerships and collaborations within and beyond the industry to realize this growth. Emboldening the trade as a positive force for people and the planet completes the plan’s vision. This event is free and open to all. A live Q&A session will be available to attendees.
“With the NUA as a platform and the strong support we’ve received from the industry, we are ready to rebuild all that has been lost,” Fletcher said. “It is going to take some time, but we see a very bright future ahead.”
The 2020-2023 NUA Strategic Plan provides a high-level snapshot of the NUA organization, as well as an in-depth look at the seven areas targeted for growth, which are the heart of the strategy. Topics range from building a resource of performance standards for the industry, to supporting national and regional networking events, to aligning with sustainability initiatives at scale. The plan will be of interest to upholstery professionals and students, educators, industry partners and champions, and other stakeholders who support growing a thriving domestic upholstery industry that supports artists, entrepreneurs, green jobs, material reuse, and small businesses.
Founded in mid-2019 to inspire a rebirth of the upholstery profession, the NUA is already over 180 members strong. The NUA’s mission is to work together with the greater upholstery community to support and advance the field of professional upholstery. Membership is open to all categories of the upholstery craft: professionals, students, educators, and suppliers.
