The U.S. Roundtable for Sustainable Poultry & Eggs (US-RSPE) and the International Poultry Welfare Alliance (IPWA) are currently conducting a search for an executive director who can provide management duties and leadership for both organizations as they develop and progress.

The groups, with the assistance of the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, are working with executive search firm Kincannon & Reed to fill this position by June.

US-RSPE and IPWA both aspire to advance, support and communicate continuous improvement in sustainability and animal welfare through leadership, innovation, multi-stakeholder engagement and collaboration. The groups will also seek to evaluate current and emerging concerns related to animal welfare and sustainability and aim to advance tangible outcomes through research, education and outreach initiatives.


Acknowledging the synergies that can be gained by combining their efforts, the groups will be offering a joint membership so that stakeholders within the poultry and egg value chain can benefit from both sustainability and animal welfare initiatives. US-RSPE and IPWA have mutual endeavors on areas of common interest – sustainability and animal welfare – and believe that membership in these integrated groups will benefit the entire poultry and egg supply and value chain.

US-RSPE and IPWA are excited to begin the collaborative process of addressing and advancing the issues related to animal welfare and sustainability. Both groups will be informing potential stakeholders of opportunities to be actively engaged as members in the near future.
