WASHINGTON—Security Industry Association COO Rand Price will temporarily manage day-to-day operations of the Security Industry Association, following the April 21 resignation of SIA’s longtime chief executive officer, Richard Chace, the organization told Security Director News, sister publication of Security Systems News in an email interview.

Price will manage operations under the auspices of the executive committee. No timeline was given for finding a permanent replacement for Chace.

In the April 21 statement, Gordon Hope, chairman of the SIA Board of Directors Executive Committee said: “The association has formed a search committee to seek candidates for an executive director to manage SIA moving forward.”

In that statement Hope said that the SIA Executive Committee and Chace mutually agreed “that his decision to resign at this time was in the best interests of all parties ... We thank Mr. Chace for his service and wish him well in his future endeavors.”
