He said: "I am thrilled to be able to continue for a second year, as I feel I am barely half done in the role. With the backing of a truly inspiring executive director, board and executive team, I believe we are creating a more relevant association, more dynamic and more appropriate to today's industry, and more welcoming to today's fresh new talent.
"Old habits are being peeled away, and new ideas are being explored. We have so many more exciting initiatives to share, and even more challenging objectives, so it's terrific that I have been given a mandate to continue along this path. My second year will be all about continuing our change journey, but focusing more on increasing our membership, and preparing a long term strategic plan for the association, to guarantee on-going positive progress over the next five years."
The association has experienced some restructuring since the end of last year, including the departure of Peter Ducker and appointment as Juliet Price as executive director.
Price said: "Chris’s appointment for a second term as chairman is a brilliant win for the association, and we are very fortunate that he has accepted the challenge of another year at the helm."
