He will continue to be involved with the CJA as a freelance writer. Carla Adams, currently a manager in the association office, will carry out the duties of executive director on an interim basis until a successor to Land is named, likely by mid-January.

“Brian Land was engaged primarily to assist in managing the amalgamation of the Canadian Jewellers Association with Jewelers Vigilance Canada,” said Marco Miserendino, chairman of the CJA Board of Directors.

“The knowledge and skill he brought to that file was of great assistance. The successful completion of that assignment now enables both Brian and the association to determine and pursue their respective future directions.”
