Simsbury Bank’s Bernadeta Eichner, Assistant VP and senior market manager of its Granby office, was a featured speaker at the Farmington Valley YMCA’s Women’s Day on March 8. The talk was part of a series of woman-focused events at the Y’s Granby facility; Eichner spoke about Workforce/Work and Life Balance.
“I am honored to have participated in the Y’s Woman’s Day,” said Eichner. “The Farmington Valley YMCA provides valuable services for all local residents and this program focused on women gives us the opportunity to build lifelong success for women from all backgrounds and experiences.”
Brian Liss, district executive director of YMCA Greater Hartford said, “Ms. Eichner speaks from personal experience as a manager at a local business, as a mother to two young girls and as one who is committed to community involvement. She knows first-hand the time pressures each role places on a person and was generous in sharing her perspective and tips on how to “have it all.”
Eichner has been an advisory board member of the Farmington Valley YMCA since September 2017. She has taken a leadership role in the corporate-sponsorship area for the Y and has been a volunteer for its three major fundraising events: Swim for a Cause, Bike for the Battle and the Granby Road Race.
