Washington, DC, January 6, 2020 – Effective January 1, 2020, the Leather Industries of America (LIA) and the U.S. Hide, Skin and Leather Association (USHSLA) joined forces, launching the Leather and Hide Council of America (LHCA), a new, stronger industry association for the U.S. leather sector that combines the membership, expertise and resources of its predecessor organisations. With the formation of LHCA, the U.S. leather industry is better positioned to be a leader in the global leather sector with one collective voice.
The merger was the result of a year-long effort to bring the two associations together. For further information please open this PDF Press release - Leather and Hide Council of America officially launched
