WASHINGTON — Responsible Industry for a Sound Environment (RISE) has begun the search for a new president. Current RISE President Allen James has announced his retirement, effective Aug. 31, 2010.

The RISE president is responsible for leadership and management of the association, which is an affiliate of CropLife America.

The RISE president also leads a professional staff of four, focusing on government and regulatory affairs, communications and member services. The position is located in Washington, and the new president will assume duties on June 1, 2010, to allow for an overlap with James and ensure a smooth transition.
