About this Event


The holidays are over, and your resolutions are made – however, we hope that still means you can enjoy a glass of wine with your fellow BPW ladies! We invite you to join us for a cozy evening by the fire at Parlour Italian Kitchen & Bar on Wednesday, January 22nd, 2020 from 5:30 PM-7:30 PM.

Please join us to hear Joan Hertz, current Chair of the Alberta Treasury Branch Board of Directors chat about her over 25 years of board experiences. Joan has a long history in corporate governance and she will be sharing her thoughts on how to join a board and how to be an effective participant on boards.

Joan is the Chair of ATB Financial Board of Directors, and previously served as a director at ATB Financial from 2008 – 2018, and as Chair of the Governance and Conduct Review Committee. She currently serves as a board member and Chair of the Audit Committee for Edmonton International Airport, and sits as a public member on the CPA Canada Board, as well as a private company board, Silvacom Ltd.

She teaches Legal and Fiduciary Duties of Directors at the Institute of Corporate Directors, and for over 25 years has provided governance, legal, and strategic advisory services to the private sector and crown clients ranging from small to large institutional firms.

She has served as a public member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Alberta Council, the Alberta Accountants Unification Agency and the Provincial Judicial Council. She is the former Chair of the Provincial Court Nominating Committee. She has also served on Alberta’s Promise and was formerly with Kid’s Kottage Foundation, and Edmonton Catholic Cemeteries Board, as well as numerous other boards.

Joan graduated from the University of Alberta Law School with an LL.B., and Georgetown University in Washington D.C. with a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service degree (Magna Cum Laude) in International Politics, Law and Organization.

She’s also a wife, mom and a soccer player who believes whatever we do, we should have fun every day.
