Benefiting Your Team through Volunteer Leadership
TRSA's Leadership & Legislative Conference strengthens member companies by engaging their management teams in activities that improve their leadership skills. Attendees advocate the industry and impact TRSA initiatives. Participation accelerates professional development:

  • With presentations that improve attendees' understanding of emerging social and political agendas driving the economy; and
  • By involving them in developing new industry resources to improve everyday practices that build their companies' competitive edge.

Hill Meetings
The conference improves your team’s skills as educators and company representatives by training them to confer with federal regulators, lawmakers and their key staff. Meeting with influential policymakers and building relationships with industry colleagues performing this same function generates immediate and long-term benefits for your company.

TRSA Committee Meetings
Member companies' volunteer participation in committees maximizes the value of TRSA membership by prompting TRSA to act on the operational and management issues that benefit you most. Such volunteer service develops leadership skills year-round. Multiple executives and management from the same member textile services operator (launderer) company may join different committees.

All TRSA committees meet at this Washington event as a means of facilitating these panels' projects and participation while engaging committee members in our advocacy with legislators. TRSA committee meetings cover new initiatives, committee member project assignments and discussion of operational and management issues. These working sessions lay the groundwork for TRSA advocacy, certification, research and benchmarking, networking and information-sharing, and professional development activities to guide the industry.
