The Mould Makers Council of the Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) will be under new leadership starting May 1.
Charmian Entine, the current director of the Mould Makers council, and a 25-year veteran of the CPIA, is stepping down as she prepares for retirement.
Effective May 1, Entine will transfer her duties to Sally Damstra, who currently holds the post of director, international trade and shows at the CPIA, and is the manager of the CPIA’s Machinery Council.
CPIA President and CEO, Serge Lavoie, said Damstra’s years of experience make her well-equipped to deal with the tough issues facing Canadian moldmakers. Entine, however, said tackling these issues can only be accomplished through active participation from the moldmaking industry.
“The continued effectiveness of this Council depends heavily on the input of its members,” she said in a statement. “I trust you will volunteer your time and expertise to the Council so that it will continue to provide essential services to your businesses in these challenging times.”
Entine will continue to work part-time as the CPIA’s Diretor of Membership, focusing on recruiting new members and retaining current ones. Entine plans to enter full retirement in November.
