OSA is happy to announce the recent appointment of Zea Sonnabend to the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB). Zea is the Policy Specialist and Organic Inspector Specialist for CCOF, an organic certifier based in California. She has served on the board of the Organic Materials Review Institute, the International Organic Inspectors Association, and the California Department of Agriculture Invasive Species Advisory Council. And she currently serves on OSA’s board of directors, so we’re excited to have a seed advocate stepping into this role.
Zea has extensive scientific knowledge and experience with materials used in organic production and handling. Formerly, she served as a technical advisor to the NOSB from 1993 to 1995. Other NOSB appointments can be viewed here.
