The Automotive Industries Association (AIA) of Canada is seeking a director to head a new project overseeing the delivery of I-CAR training in Canada. I-CAR is a well established not-for-profit organization that develops and delivers technical training for the collision sector in the U.S and around the world through partners such as AIA.
The program director will be responsible for building the infrastructure in Canada to deliver, monitor, track and grow training for all aspects of the collision repair industry. Duties will include strategic planning, partnership development, industry relations, business planning, data collection, committee and advisory group development, creation of a trainer network and liaison with the I-CAR head office in the U.S.
Working with an established team in Ottawa, the director will be a self-starter who has knowledge/experience with one or all of the following: training, the collision sector, start-up development, the automotive sector in Canada, association management. The ability to work collaboratively with partners and a volunteer network is essential.
While AIA would prefer a director who is able to work from the AIA National office, we are open to a qualified individual who may be located and working elsewhere in Canada. Proficiency in both of Canada’s official languages would be considered an asset.
Interested parties should apply in confidence by sending a resume, cover letter and salary expectations to the AIA President, Marc Brazeau by September 24th 2009 by either phone, fax, or email.
