Simsbury Bank is pleased to announce that Bernadeta Eichner, AVP and Senior Market Manager of its Granby office, was a featured speaker at the Farmington Valley YMCA’s Women’s Day on March 8th.  The talk was one of a series of woman-focused events that day at the Y’s facility at 97 Salmon Brook Street in Granby.  Ms. Eichner spoke about Workforce/Work and Life Balance.

“I am honored to have participated in the Y’s Woman’s Day,” said Ms. 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”.

Ms. Eichner has been an Advisory Board Member of the Farmington Valley YMCA since September of 2017. She has taken a leadership role in the corporate sponsorship area for the Y and has been a volunteer for their three major fundraising events: Swim for a Cause, Bike for the Battle and the Granby Road Race.

The YMCA of Greater Hartford is a charitable association open to all and committed to helping people develop their fullest potential in spirit, mind and body. This commitment is reinforced by its belief in living out universal values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
