NPMA Attends and Participates in RISE Annual Meeting in Marana, AZ
It was an excellent annual meeting hosted by RISE this year at the Ritz Carlton in Marana, AZ. NPMA was incredibly pleased to participate. Of interest to public policy, our industry was represented on the RISE Legislative Affairs Committee (LAC) chaired by Steve Dorer of Syngenta. Steve did an incredible job Chairing the Committee and his leadership during his year as Chair has been very effective. The LAC committee highlighted threats to the pesticide industry, significant victories, and decided to take action on next steps to combat looming threats. In particular, RISE LAC accepted NPMA’s offer to form a preemption working group that will be hosted at NPMA’s office in the coming months prior to the start of the 2020 legislative sessions. Additional shout outs to Karen Reardon, Stephanie Binns, Chris Novak, Riley Titus, Kellie Bray, and all other CLA-RISE Staff that made us feel welcome. We look forward to continuing our relationship with our friends at CropLife America and RISE!
