Affiliate Program Member Application

Affiliate Program Members are higher education degree granting textile, apparel and related area programs seeking or aspiring to accreditation.  Affiliate Program Membership allows program participation in matters addressing issues in higher education that may have an impact on accreditation. 

The program pays the non-refundable Affiliate Program Member dues of $500.00/year, with membership beginning January 1.  Dues are not prorated. 

Each program identifies a Program Representative who becomes a member of the TAPAC Assembly of Delegates and is eligible to be nominated to the TAPAC Board of Commissioners and TAPAC committees.  Members of the Assembly of Delegates have voting rights on accreditation related matters (e.g., elections and amendment of the TAPAC Bylaws, Accreditation Standards, and Policies and Procedures).
