Textiles Secretary to launch India’s First Technology Innovation Centre
To be the Chief Guest on the Second IAM Convocation

The Apparel Training & Design Centre (ATDC) under the Education & Training Initiatives of Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC) is going to set up India’s first ‘Technology Innovation Research Centre’ at the ATDC-Training of Trainers’ Academy, Gurgaon, in collaboration with JUKI India Pvt. Ltd. This Centre will demonstrate leading edge technologies and undertaking applied research. The ATDC-JUKI TECH Innovation Centre is an important initiative to strengthen the Apparel Industry, especially the SMEs, to adopt new technologies for increasing productivity, efficiency and quality for better price realisation and better global competitiveness.

The Centre will be launched by Textiles Secretary Smt. Kiran Dhingra, IAS tomorrow in the presence of Dr. A. Sakthivel, Chairman, AEPC, ATDC & IAM; Hari Kapoor, Vice-Chairman, ATDC; and a team from JUKI.

The ATDC-JUKI TECH Innovation Centre will be a platform where industry and academia can focus on showcasing and demonstrating leading edge technology and carrying out applied ‘Research’ which is a key word in SMART (Skills for Manufacturing of Apparel through Research and Training). Applied ‘Research’ combined with technology training can become a potent force to catalyse advancement of apparel production techniques and praxis, that would be relevant for India’s apparel manufacturing environment.

Smt. Dhingra will also be the Chief Guest and Convocation Speaker on the 2nd Convocation of Institute of Apparel Management at the Apparel House Auditorium tomorrow. The Institute of Apparel Management, which over the last three academic years has carved a niche as a premier fashion institute, is celebrating its 2nd Convocation.

Friend --

This Saturday, Michelle and I are heading out to events as part of the National Day of Service -- and I hope you'll join us.

It's a day to put politics aside, give back to our communities, and honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by following his example. If we want to bring about change, it has to start with us, person by person and block by block.

Volunteers have organized thousands of events in all 50 states -- look up one in or around Baldwin, RSVP, and we'll see you out there this Saturday.

Here's just one event close to you:

What: National Day of Service Event in Baldwin

Where: 1246 Saint Paul's Street
Baldwin, NY 11510

When: Saturday, January 19th
1:00 pm EST

RSVP now

I wanted service to be a big part of my inauguration because it's played a huge role in my life.

As a young community organizer starting out in Chicago, I learned that the best ideas, the ones that succeed, take hold at the grassroots. No one needs to wait on politicians or Washington: Change happens when individuals take responsibility for one another and their communities.

At the Day of Service in 2009, I visited with military families and wounded service members at the Walter Reed Medical Center and painted walls at a homeless shelter. Joe packed his toolbox and helped Habitat for Humanity hang drywall in new housing in D.C., while my girls, Michelle, and Dr. Jill Biden filled care packages for our troops overseas.

See what's going on near you, and be part of the inauguration by joining your neighbors on Saturday:

I'll see you out there on the 19th.
