From its inception, imaginative and constructive programs fulfilled its goals. The first major challenge of the new organization was the creation of Home Fashions Time with its slogan, "Enjoy Living at Home". Initiated in 1948 and debuted in 1949, it was a nation-wide promotion adopted by 8000 retailers and endorsed by nineteen industry associations and most major buying offices. Other innovative programs, Career Day, Trailblazer Awards, Design Fellowships, student scholarships and community service projects were early highlights that sought to reinforce the stature of members and the directions of the industry. Some continue to this day in both traditional and new formats.
