The structure of the organisation

The Acte Organisation

ACTE is a network of around 30 Municipalities around Europe, representing a population of about 2.000.000 inhabitants. The cities and territories associated have in common a model of business development related to the textile and fashion sectors. The network also counts on membership by institutions related to the textile indsty, local development agencies, research in textile, design, education, and further more. Our members all provide the network with different dimensions on the evolution of the sector, making our performance more complete. 
The organisation is led by an executive committee and an elected presidential staff for three years at a time. All members meet annually at our Annual General Meeting (AGM).
