The Craft & Hobby Association’s Board of Directors announced Friday that CHA President and CEO Steve Berger has departed the Association.
The CHA Board of Directors will begin the search process immediately for a replacement for Berger. While the search process is completed, CHA Vice President of Meetings & Expositions Tony Lee will serve as Acting President and CEO. No schedule has been set for the completion of the search process.
Steve Berger became Executive Director of HIA in 2003, before the 2004 merger of HIA and the Association of Crafts & Creative Industries (ACCI) that created CHA. He has headed CHA since the merger. In September of 2009, the CHA Board of Directors announced that it was extending Berger’s employment contract for two years, through 2011.
