The British Columbia Chicken Marketing Board (BCCMB) is a non-profit organization that monitors and regulates the production and marketing of chicken in BC while meeting consumer expectations, including animal care and on-farm food safety. The BCCMB works closely with Chicken Farmers of Canada (CFC), who monitor trade negotiations and engage with government to ensure the integrity of supply management for chicken is maintained. The BCCMB is committed to working with industry partners and implementing programs that provide the opportunity for a fair return to the producers and also allows processors to be competitive in the domestic market.
The current Executive Director (ED) of the BCCMB has been in the role for 18 years. He is highly knowledgeable of the sector and well regarded by the Board and his peers across Canada. Although it will be a changing of the guard, there are a lot of national and international trade issues that will be coming to the forefront over the next few years, which will create an opportunity for British Columbia to play a bigger role at the national level. The new ED will report to a five-member Board of Directors, manage an operating budget, and oversee a team responsible for completing the allocation of quota every eight weeks, collecting grower levies, conducting On Farm Food Safety and Biosecurity Inspections, as well as keeping growers up to date on what’s new in the industry. The ideal candidate will have a university degree in a relevant discipline; a minimum of 10 years’ senior management experience leading a team; strong financial, economic, and business acumen; and demonstrated capacity to analyze and interpret government policy and regulations.
