President’s Message

Dear Members,

One thing we can be sure of this year:  No one can be sure of what the future holds in 2022!

The last year was difficult for many supplier and operator members. We were all faced with economic challenges that had never been experienced before and that will most probably extend into the next year and beyond. But we made it together, looked for solutions together, and ARTA is more committed than ever to help provide members data that makes the case for reusable textiles. Sign up for our e-newsletter to learn more about ARTA’s projects and activities.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all our members for their participation in 2021. Thank you for supporting our Speakers Series, for sending your questions/concerns, and for being part of this association. May we keep turning all challenges we encounter into great opportunities for 2022!




ARTA President Gabriel Boardman


I also want to thank Executive Director Nancy Jenkins and the ARTA Directors and Officers for their incredible work throughout 2021. Our board members are volunteers, but that has never stopped them from meeting throughout the Pandemic. I applaud our board and thank them for their generous and ongoing contributions of time and talent.

I hope to connect with you during ARTA’s 2022 events and at the Clean Show in Atlanta from July 30 to August 2!

Best wishes to all,

Gabriel Boardman
ARTA President
