The Natural Products Association (NPA) announced its 2015 committees and work groups, including the newly formed Next Generation Leadership Committee, the Natural Food Work Group and the Sustainable Standard Work Group.
The Next Generation Leadership Committee will provide perspective, education and expertise on the natural products industry to millennial consumers and industry experts.
The Natural Food Work Group and Sustainable Standard Work Group, created to formulate a standard of sustainability for all natural products, will work under the Committee for Product and Label Integrity (ComPLI), and develop an association definition for foods.
“All of our committees and work groups play a vital role in tackling the big issues that lay ahead for the industry,” said NPA CEO Daniel Fabricant, PhD.
Each committee is responsible for facilitating progress on association goals and initiatives, and helping to further the mission of the organization – to ensure consumer access to natural products while protecting retailers’ and suppliers’ right to do business. Longstanding association committees include Communications, Membership, the ComPLI, among others, according to NPA.
“Our committees work from the ground up, providing focus for the organization. NPA is moving fast on a variety of issues, from advocacy to science and regulatory to communications and more. These committees, and the volunteers who contribute their time and energy, ensure the association is seeing all viewpoints and receiving input from all facets of the industry to better both the organization and the industry as a whole. At NPA we believe in one member, one vote, and we value every member’s involvement and voice on our issues. Members are encouraged to get the most out of their membership by joining in our committees and work groups throughout the year. It’s not too late to sign up and make a difference. The more people who participate on a higher level, the better results we will see for the natural products industry,” said Fabricant.
