The Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association (OSCIA) has posted the position of executive director (ED) and invites all interested individuals to apply. The successful candidate will take over the position in January 2023.
Andrew Graham, the current ED, has announced his plans to retire in June 2023 after 33-years at OSCIA. After graduating from the University of Guelph, Graham invested the first ten years of his career learning the art and science of agricultural soil and water conservation, first at the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority in London for seven years before taking a similar position with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs working out of the Oxford County office in Woodstock. His career path shifted over to OSCIA in 1990 where he has devoted many years since working alongside others on environmental program design, delivery, and performance measure. In 2014 he moved into the role.
The board of directors are heading the search and have engaged Brook Coatsworth from Litherland and Company to coordinate the effort.
The job posting can be found on the OSCIA website at ontariosoilcrop.org.
The deadline to submit is October 20, 2022. Final selection of the individual is expected to be completed in December. The start date is early January 2023. Graham will assume special project assignments at that time and assist in the transition of responsibilities for several months before he steps back altogether.
