The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA), a non-profit association dedicated to promoting the industry and the safe selection and use of juvenile products, is opening a Washington, D.C., office with two new staff members leading the D.C. team. The suburban Philadelphia-based trade association is opening the office at a time where there is an increased need for the industry to have a consistent presence in D.C. for collaborations with the federal government.

Julie Vallese has been appointed to the position of managing director of public and government affairs. Mark Fellin will serve as the director of regulatory and legislative affairs.
