Karen Grommada joined the MIABC’s Board of Directors in 2019 and is currently the Chair of the Finance Committee.

A Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA, CMA), Ms. Grommada has accrued over 25 years of expertise in municipal accounting and finance leadership at a series of local governments in B.C. She started with Port Coquitlam’s Finance Department in 2007, was promoted to Director of Finance in 2013 and promoted to Director of Finance/Deputy CAO in 2021.

Having worked for a number of MIABC members, she has seen first-hand the value the MIABC provides to local governments. “It’s one thing to say that ‘principles precede profit’ but the MIABC is actually run that way. I appreciate how the MIABC keeps members’ interests at the top of mind. Nowhere is this more evident than in its principled approach to claims handling and its effort to educate members.”
