Industry Advisory Board

industry advisory board

The AMM Industry Advisory Board is comprised of leaders from a cross section of employers in the apparel and textile industry, including apparel manufacturers, fashion retailers, software companies, equipment manufacturers, textile producers, financial companies, and business consulting firms. They meet twice a year with the faculty and the college leadership to discuss development of the AMM department and program.

AMM Advisory Board meetings include discussions on how changes in the apparel business will impact development of the AMM curriculum. The AMM Industry Advisory Board contributes to the program in many additional ways. Board members have assisted the program with acquisition of new equipment, software, and class materials. Board member companies also provide speakers, field trip sites, internships, and they sponsor competitions. This support enriches the learning experience for students in the AMM program.
