Inspiring, Creating TRSA Resources
TRSA Committees drive programming for meetings and publications and provide key input for association policy decisions.
Participating on TRSA Committees connects members with colleagues, both operators and associates, to share information and ideas on specific issues and markets. Participants develop educational content for conferences and programs, assist in identifying topics and authors for Textile Services magazine and are often tasked by the Board of Directors to examine issues and provide guidance to the association.
TRSA Committee Chairs are appointed by the elected TRSA Chair and approved by the Board of Directors. Committee members are selected by the Chair and subject to the approval of the Board of Directors. All committees meet at the annual Leadership & Legislative Conference and a second time during the year, often at the Annual Conference or another location or teleconference as coordinated by the Committee Chair.
Everyone in a managerial role in a textile services company is vested in committee efforts and it’s in every company's specific best interests for committee projects to be completed swiftly and effectively. TRSA member laundry operators in any profession (administration, sales, service, production, etc.) may seek a seat on the panel that intrigues them most and receive assignments immediately.

Associate Committee Represents Suppliers' Interests
Usually held at the TRSA Leadership & Legislative Conference and Annual Conference, Associate Committee meetings are open to all Associate Member companies attending these events. Such members are suppliers of products and services to the textile services industry. These companies benefit from networking with operator members and sponsoring events at TRSA functions, advertising in print and online communications, serving on the complete range of committees and receiving publicity such as listings in the Buyers Guide (digital and print), Membership Roster, and Textile Services magazine articles. Recognizing the importance of Associates to TRSA governance, positions representing them are included on the TRSA Board of Directors with all Associate Members invited to help determine who will serve in these.
