It is with regret that the NBMCA Board of Directors announces that Chithra Gowda has informed us of her resignation from her position as the Chief Administrative Officer at the North Bay Mattawa Conservation Authority effective June 10, 2024.  She is taking an exciting role with another Conservation Authority in eastern Ontario, and looking forward to being close to family living in the area.   

During her time as the CAO Chithra provided direction and oversight as the organization was tasked with realigning the programs, compliance and reporting processes to meet the significant changes put in place by the provincial government.

The Board is extremely grateful to Chithra for the energy, vision and dedication she brought to the North Bay Mattawa Conservation Authority and we wish her all the best in her future endeavors.

We are currently in the process of securing interim leadership to work with Chithra prior to her departure, as we begin the recruitment process for a permanent Chief Administrative Officer.

The North Bay Mattawa Conservation Authority is a community-based, non-profit environmental organization that manages natural resources on a watershed basis.
