Leaders International is hiring the new Chief Executive Officer for the Canadian Bar Association.
As Canada's largest, most respected, and influential national legal association, the Canadian Bar Association (CBA) has embarked on a journey of significant change that will position it, and its members, for continued success. An essential ally and advocate for members, the CBA promotes fair justice systems, facilitates effective law reform, upholds equality in the legal profession, and is devoted to eliminating discrimination.
The CBA actively engages with the Canadian legal community in matters of common interest and mutual benefit. The CBA partners with leading thinkers and innovators within the legal profession and disseminates knowledge on global and national trends affecting the profession, and its members.
Through the dedicated staff and volunteers of the National Office in Ottawa and its regional Branches across Canada, the CBA serves 36,000 members from coast to coast to coast.
The CBA CEO reports directly to the CBA Board of Directors. The CEO is accountable for leading the development and execution of the CBA's long-term strategy with a view to creating member value and ensuring that the CBA is a respected leader in the area of advocacy in support of the legal profession.
The CEO is ultimately responsible for all day-to-day enterprise management decisions and for implementing long- and short-term plans. The CEO acts as a direct liaison between the Board of Directors and management and communicates on behalf of the CBA with members, employees, stakeholders, courts, government authorities, and the public. The CEO also works in a close, collaborative relationship with the Branch Executive Directors from across Canada.
