AAPN’s Sue Strickland, Mike Todaro Honored With Lifetime Achievement Award During 2019 pro:Americas Annual Meeting


Sue Strickland has run what would become AAPN since 1991 – Mike Todaro joined her in 1995. Back then AAPN was known as the American Apparel Contractors Association, and not only the name has undergone a transformation over the years.

Beginning with the idea to extend membership to the Americas in 2001, later the world; changing the name first to the American Apparel Producers Network, then in 2013 to the Americas Apparel Producers’ Network to reflect the changing nature of the organization; hosting conferences in Central and South America; adding regional conferences across the United States to allow less-senior personnel the opportunity to participate in the network; and establishing the Carolinas Mill tour to help educate brands and retailers on steps in the garment production chain with a focus on the supply chain available in the Carolinas.
