*The Trading Partner Alliance (TPA) is a joint industry affairs-industry relations leadership group that was formed by GMA and FMI in January 2009.  The TPA exists to develop a shared retailer-manufacturer agenda on supply chain efficiency issues, the application of information technology, the adoption of environmentally-friendly business practices and other issues. This common agenda is executed jointly by the FMI and GMA staffs and is overseen by the boards of directors of both organizations.
