Executive Director,
Canadian Woodlands Forum

It is with mixed emotions that the Canadian Woodlands Forum (CWF) is looking for a new executive director. Peter Robichaud has served the CWF for over 27 years and as executive director since 2001 and has recently announced his well earned retirement from the CWF. Peter will work with the incoming executive director for some time to ensure a smooth transition.

Peter has worked tirelessly managing the organization during his tenure, delivering valuable educational programing, operational and business management training, forestry advocacy and a solid base of continuing membership from across the forest industry. Peter will no doubt be missed but is leaving a very solid organization that is well set to handle the challenges of the forestry sector of today and into the future. In this exciting role, the new executive director will report to the board of directors.

Peter travaillera avec le nouveau directeur exécutif pendant un certain temps afin d'assurer une transition en douceur.

Peter a travaillé sans relâche à la gestion de l'organisation pendant son mandat, offrant des programmes éducatifs de grande valeur, des formations en gestion opérationnelle et commerciale, la défense des intérêts de la foresterie et une base solide de membres permanents provenant de toute l'industrie forestière. Peter nous manquera sans doute, mais il laisse une organisation très solide et bien préparée pour relever les défis du secteur forestier d'aujourd'hui et de demain. Dans ce rôle passionnant, le nouveau directeur exécutif rendra compte au conseil d'administration.
