Board of Directors:


The Valley International Trade Association was founded in 1979 by a group of dedicated Valley business professionals and educators responding to the need for a local association focusing on issues in international trade.

Since its inception, VITA has been the only resource, referral and educational association for international business in the Greater San Fernando Valley. A nonprofit, membership-supported trade association, VITA presents luncheons, seminars, and workshops addressing issues in international trade. These events offer valuable up-to-date information on the global marketplace and networking opportunities for VITA members.

VITA membership includes executives, manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, entrepreneurs, bankers, freight forwarders, U.S. government officials, faculty members from local colleges and universities, and other trade professionals.

Mission Statement:

Our mission is to promote the Greater San Fernando Valley as a leader in international trade by providing our members valuable resources, informational programs, referral assistance and networking opportunities.
