On Monday, long-time leader of the National Organic Program (NOP) Administrator Miles McEvoy announced plans to step down from his position at the end of the month and return home to the state of Washington. In his letter addressed to the Organic Community, McEvoy said he wants to return to the Northwest to spend more time with his grandchildren and return to a less intense work life. He also provided his thoughts for the next deputy administrator about transitions at the NOP. He leaves big shoes to fill as the leader at the organic helm during a time of incredible growth and many challenges for the industry. We will miss Miles, and very much appreciate his work on behalf of the industry. For those who are on Natural Products Expo East this week, be sure to wish him well!
