The American Apparel & Footwear Association announced ten new members to serve on its board of directors.
“AAFA’s board members play a critical role in setting the direction of the Association,” said AAFA President and CEO Juanita D. Duggan. “In the coming year, our board will be involved in key issues such as our strategic planning, membership, policy, and efforts to elevate the AAFA brand.”
The new board members include six elected members, elected to serve a three-year term, and four appointed members, assigned to fill unexpired terms. New board members were announced at the March 18, Spring Board meeting, and include:
- Robert B. Campbell, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, BBC International

“Serving on the board requires a commitment of personal time, and I would like to thank the board members who are stepping down for their contributions,” Duggan added.
Officers of the board remain unchanged, with each re-appointed to serve an additional year to aid with the transition period for new AAFA President & CEO Juanita D. Duggan, who started her post in July 2014.
