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.
Mission: 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.
Members and Partners: 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.
