The Canadian Club of Calgary is extremely pleased to welcome the Honourable Joseph (Joe) Anthony Ceci; Alberta President of Treasury Board and Minister of Finance, as our Friday, April 8 luncheon speaker.
Known as one of Alberta’s most effective municipal leaders, Joe served as a City of Calgary alderman for 15 years where he was Vice-Chair of the Finance Committee and Chair of Community Protective Services, among other senior responsibilities. At city hall, he was widely admired for his ability to bring diverse coalitions together, and for his ongoing commitment to build Calgary’s social and economic infrastructure.
In 2005, Joe was selected by his peers to represent Calgary on the national stage, as the City’s representative to the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM). Recognizing the depth of his experience as a municipal leader, Ceci was elected Chair of the Standing Committee on Social Economic Development and Vice-Chair of the International Committee of the FCM. After five years of distinguished service at FCM, and five terms as a respected Alderman, Joe retired from municipal politics in 2010 joining Calgary-based Momentum as Manager of public policy.
On May 5, 2015, Joe was elected to the Legislative Assembly representing Calgary-Fort and was later appointed to serve as President of the Treasury Board and Minister of Finance.
Joe holds his Bachelor degree from the University of Western Ontario, and a Masters degree from the University of Calgary. Among his many accolades are a Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal, and an Alberta centennial medal.
Joe and his wife Christine live in Calgary.
Please join us on the 8th of April. Plan to be there. There is limited seating for this event.
