Farrow’s will help put OACETT’s strategic plan into action and connecting with stakeholders, partners, and members. She will also focus on better understanding how members have been affected by the COVID-19 crisis, and working with staff to provide support to members coping with disruptions in their organizations.
“OACETT has just completed an inspiring new strategic plan, so my focus will be turning that plan into annual operational milestones to demonstrate progress in careers, chapters and communities,” said Farrow.
Farrow has over 20 years of experience in not-for-profit management, including governance transformation, amalgamation and credentialing. She has been CEO of the Canadian Bar Association, President and CEO of the Supply Chain Management Association, Executive Director of the Canadian Grocery Human Resource Council, and President of the Ontario Tourism Education Corporation.
“As the new CEO, I look forward to hearing from OACETT members over the next few months, even if those meetings can’t be in-person in the early days,” said Farrow.
She has an MBA from the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, and holds the Certified Association Executive designation.
