The Canadian Health Food Association (CHFA) is Canada’s largest trade association dedicated to natural health and organic products. The natural health product industry contributes $3 billion, and the organic product industry contributes another $4 billion to the Canadian economy. CHFA is committed to promoting and protecting both. Formed in 1964 from a grassroots community of health food pioneers, CHFA now represents over 1,000 member businesses across Canada. The industry is experiencing fundamental changes and consequently the CHFA is embarking on an aggressive effort to increase its relevancy to member-companies, expanding product offerings, services and influence in Canada. This will create great opportunities for CHFA members, a healthier environment for Canadians and tremendous potential for the industry. It is within this context that the CHFA is seeking to recruit a skilled executive and entrepreneurial leader to join the team as the association’s Vice-President.
Reporting to the President, you will be a key leadership team member and an active participant in making strategic decisions affecting the CHFA. You will work in partnership with the President and CHFA board members on major board initiatives. Leading a number of key business files, you will provide strategic and knowledgeable leadership of CHFA Market Insights, financial management and membership recruitment and retention. You will also identify alliances and opportunities that will benefit CHFA members.
As the ideal candidate, you have the knowledge and experience as an executive with a trade association, the corporate sector or a not-for-profit organization. Your strong business acumen, entrepreneurial spirit, financial skills, and outstanding interpersonal and written communications skills will be essential. A well-rounded, pragmatic and highly intelligent individual, you are comfortable with providing strategic leadership, relationship-building and managing an excellent team of professionals.
