ICHSLTA is comprised of full members and associate members. Full members have full voting rights and represent their country’s hide/skin and leather industries. Normally associate members are individual companies where their own country lacks an official organisation representing their industry at home. Members share valuable country statistics with ICHSLTA and contribute to strengthening ICHSLTA’s voice on international committees such as the GLCC (Global Leather Coordinating Committee).
The AGM is held at the end of March each year during the Leather Fair in Hong Kong. The association holds other mid-term meetings during the international fairs in Shanghai (China) or Bologna (Italy). Officers are elected for a two year term.
Membership fees are available upon request from the secretary.
