Chiropractic Association of Alberta (CAA)
The Chiropractic Association of Alberta was incorporated in August 2021. It is established because of the Government of Alberta (through Bill 46) mandating that health profession regulators fully separate their association-like functions. This separation ensures the future regulatory body or college has a focused mandate to protect the public and the profession’s association can focus on supporting and promoting the profession’s interests including serving members.
It is expected that the new association will be fully independent from the Alberta College and Association of Chiropractors (ACAC) by January 1, 2022. As a result, the Association is excited about moving forward with the recruitment and selection of its first CEO. The CEO will lead and implement the recently developed strategic plan of the new organization with a key focus on maximizing the engagement of members and building the reputation of the profession as a key medical provider to Albertans.
As the CEO, reporting to the inaugural board of The Chiropractic Association of Alberta, you will be responsible for the strategic leadership, oversight, and implementation of the CAA’s strategic plan. This includes promoting awareness of mandates, goals, and established outcomes of the CAA and ensuring the key stakeholder relationships and partnerships are fostered and implemented to ensure long term growth and sustainability of the chiropractic profession. As the operational leader, you will lead the implementation of the strategic plan ensuring operational plans will support and meet the key strategic imperatives.
As a key advisor, thought leader and advocate for the CAA and Chiropractors in Alberta, you will also be responsible for ensuring the Board is well informed and prepared to make long term planning decisions that will result in optimum outcomes for the profession, the member, and the health of Albertans.
Fundamental to this role is the responsibility to initiate, develop and maintain effective and collaborative partnerships with both members and external stakeholders to advance the various strategic initiatives of the profession.
Finally, as the first CEO you will have the exciting task of developing, leading, and overseeing a professional, motivated, highly engaged team that will be responsible for operational delivery of all strategic initiatives.
The position location will be either Edmonton or Calgary. Please note the position will work virtually likely for the first 6 to 12 months. Some travel may be required.
