Charlie Brimley, executive director of the Canadian Plastics Sector Council (CPSC), has left the organization, to be replaced by former senior project manager Amelia Siva.
Brimley, who served as executive director since 2002, is taking on a new position as CEO of the Canadian Association for Laboratory Accreditation.
“I have absolutely enjoyed my tenure and the challenge that was presented to me some six years ago at the CPSC,” Brimley said. “I believe that we have positioned the CPSC very strategicaly in order to continue to deliver our mandate to assist plastics firms in their human resources management function.”
The Ottawa-based CPSC is a national not-for-profit association created to explore and address emerging human resources issues in the plastics processing industry. Established through the Sectoral Partnerships Initiative program of Human Resources Social Development Canada (formally Human Resources Skills and Development Canada), the Council is a partnership of employers and employees in the industry.
Under Brimley’s leadership, the CPSC developed human resource products and services such as its National Occupational Standards, as well as the Council’s Certified Plastics Practitioner (Cert.PP) system that measures individuals against a set of National Occupational Standards for 13 occupations at varying levels of plastics industry proficiency.
