At Christine's urging, Jackie agreed to piut her name in for the appointment process for the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.  Jackie, a stellar candidate with terrific credentials from Hill & Knowlton, has now been appointed as COO of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.  

    On Sunday, September 24th at the Montréal chapter AGM, Martine Irman (IWFC Toronto) became Third Vice Chair of the Board of Directors and Christine Bergevin became Chair.  Anne Marie Hubert (IWFC Montréal) who currently leads the Board of the Public Policy Forum and is a Director of the Board of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, kindly agreed to co-lead the Board Task Force on Diversity.
