MISSISSAUGA, Ontario — After 12 years as chairman of the Canadian Home Furnishings Alliance board of directors, Laine Reynolds is leaving the volunteer position. He will continue to serve as past chair and a member of the events committee.

In addition to his position as vice president, sales and marketing, for Superstyle Furniture, Reynolds also sits on the advisory committee of the Canadian Furniture Show as a representative of the outside showrooms.

Reynold’s involvement with association activities began in 1984, and in 1989 he became a member of the events committee, which he chaired from 2002 until 2005. He has served on the board of directors since 2003 and as chairman from 2005 to 2017, the longest chair tenure in the 127-history of the organization.

John Power, chair of the events committee, board member for the past 10 years and general manager sales and strategic development for Mega Group Inc., said, "I believe that one of the most important achievements Laine has made to the CHFA is adapting the association to current business realities in order to keep it alive through one of the most tumultuous periods in the industry and since the establishment of the association in 1890.

"The organization remains a viable and relevant organization after all the closures of manufacturers, retailers and other industry associations in the past 10 years," he added.

A new chair will be elected at a board of directors' meeting on Sept. 21, subsequent to the CHFA’s Annual General Meeting.
