Automate Canada and the Canadian Association of Moldmakers (CAMM) are returning to an organizational structure led by an executive director rather a president.
Nicole Vlanich has assumed the role of executive director on an interim basis, the two organizations announced in a statement signed by Kim Thiara, chair of CAMM and Shelley Fellows, chair of Automate Canada.
CAMM and Automate Canada had named Jeanine Lassaline-Berglund as the two organizations’ first ever president back in May of 2021.
The statement signed by Thiara and Fellows reads: “Much like every organization, the pressures of the pandemic have been a challenge for CAMM and Automate Canada. In consultation with our president and after careful consideration, Automate Canada and CAMM have made the decision to return to an organizational structure lea by an executive director. The boards of CAMM and Automate Canada would like to express our sincere gratitude to our outgoing president, Jeanine Lassaline-Berglund, for her leadership, service and dedication to both our organizations. We wish her all the best.”
