Message From CSSEA's Board Chair

This message is distributed on behalf of Rod Santiago, chair of CSSEA’s Board of Directors

I'm writing to inform you that Gentil Mateus is no longer serving as CEO of CSSEA, effective immediately.

The Board of Directors and staff want to thank Gentil for the leadership he's provided to our sector over the past 12 years. Much has been accomplished by CSSEA’s highly skilled team for the betterment of the community social services sector throughout BC. Specifically, I highlight our significant wage parity gains achieved over the last several rounds of collective bargaining, unrivaled capturing and analysis of comprehensive human resource data to support the achievement of our bargaining objectives, professional HR/LR supports to 200+ agencies across the province, the genesis and growth of the Community Services Awards of Excellence, creation of the Community Social Services Health and Safety Association, and customized, on-demand educational offerings to managers in our sector, to name a few.

We thank Gentil and wish him well in his future endeavors.

The CSSEA Board will undertake the process of selecting a new CEO. In the interim, Mark Slobin and Eric Peraro have assumed additional responsibilities to ensure stability to the important work of CSSEA. Thank you Mark and Eric; thank you to the entire CSSEA team.

Please contact Mark for operations-related matters, and myself for governance-related queries during this time of transition, at these email addresses:  This email address is being protected from spambots.
