Dr Heather Banham


Heather is a long-term resident of the Okanagan Valley and has lived in West Kelowna for more than 30 years.

Heather was Dean at the Okanagan School of Business for seven years and Associate Dean for the previous five years.  Her responsibilities included ensuring that curriculum and all teaching and learning activities meet the academic standards of the credentials being awarded. The flagship program of the school is the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) and the contributions of the graduates to the economy and the community attest to the integrity of the program.

Heather has spent more than a decade contributing to the working groups and committees of the Certified General Accountants of British Columbia (CGABC) and the merged organization, the Chartered Professional Accountants of British Columbia (CPABC). Both organizations had regulatory responsibilities for the accounting profession in the Province and she participated in various committees including membership, discipline, education appeals and others.

In 2017/18 Heather took on the role of Chair of the Board for CPABC. During that year she had the opportunity to visit members throughout BC and traveled to 25 communities for the annual member engagement tour.
