Extraordinary thought leaders

Jun 28, 2021

As our profession continues to grow in strength and impact, so too does the influence and importance of our Councils. They are the lifeblood of the CMA.  

Brent Chaters, former Co-Chair of our Martech Council and now a member of our Board of Directors and Chair of our Learning Committee, says: “The Councils reflect the most relevant topics in marketing today. They are the frontline for our voice and our thought capital – champions to challenge all Canadian marketers to think bigger, better and differently.”

Our Councils cover all aspects of marketing. Council members hold senior roles at major brands, service providers, agencies, charities, public sector organizations and more. 

Today, I am pleased to announce our Co-Chairs for the 2021-22 Council term. We are grateful to these ‘leaders of leaders’ for their commitment to the profession. Please join me in welcoming them:
