Banham honoured with CGA Fellowship designation

Banham was recognized for her contribution to the development of Okanagan College’s business program and creation of strategic partnerships.

The Dean of Okanagan College’s School of Business, Dr. Heather Banham, has been awarded the highest honour that can be bestowed on a member of the Certified General Accountants (CGA) Association.

On Sept. 20, CGA-BC honoured eight of its members with a CGA Fellowship designation, which is given to members who have made outstanding contributions to the CGA Association or the accounting profession.

CGA-BC Chair David Sale praised Banham as a “fine example for anyone in a position of leadership within a large, multi-faceted organization.”

Banham was specifically recognized for her contribution to the development of the College’s business program and the creation of strategic partnerships between the College and the CGA, which resulted in a $100,000 endowment from the CGA through the Okanagan College Foundation. She also serves as second Vice Chair of the CGA-BC’s Board of Directors and has recently been elected as first Vice Chair for 2015. In addition, she has served on several committees, including Discipline and Education Appeals, and on CGA Canada’s National Education Committee.

“It was a real honour to be selected for the Fellowship designation by CGA Canada,” says Banham. “While the award is presented as a recognition for past service, I am looking forward to continuing to contribute as the CA, CGA and CMA merging of the profession takes place.”
