Highly visible and interactive, the successful new ED will be professional in personal style, demeanor and presence, who is comfortable interacting with all members, staff and other constituents who contribute to the success of the organization. The candidate will possess the proven experience and ability to lead a team of friendly, engaging and passionate staff who are sincere about delivering an excellent member and partner experience, commensurate with one of the top not-for-profit associations in Canada. Experience working in a senior leadership role in the not-for-profit or national association or NGO sector, ideally with a style demonstrating a “members first” philosophy, would be an asset. S/he will possess excellent interpersonal and diplomatic skills, and will be an effective and transparent communicator in all respects, operating collegially and collaboratively at all levels.
