Council Member Nominations
Each year AIBC members and honorary members have an opportunity to help shape the work of the body responsible for the self-regulating governance of the architectural profession in British Columbia in the public interest. AIBC Council’s leadership ensures that the AIBC is a vibrant, active and effective organization, while helping to ensure the ongoing success of, and interest in, the architectural profession and the built environment.
Council consists of 15 voting members: 10 elected by and from the members (architects) in good standing, four appointed by the Lieutenant Governor, and a representative of the UBC School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture. The annual council nomination and election processes are governed by the Architects Act, AIBC Bylaws and council policy. In the spring each year five council members are elected for a two-year term, beginning immediately following the annual meeting.
AIBC Council has identified a set of skills and competencies for which familiarity by council members would be beneficial for council as a whole in achieving their governance mandate. The desired competencies of council members include governance expertise, finance, business management, risk management, information technology, strategic planning, communications/ marketing, human resources, legal, public sector knowledge, and leadership skills. Members and honorary members are asked to consider these competencies when submitting nominations for council during the annual call for nominations process. The AIBC welcomes nominees from across British Columbia as participation on council can be facilitated by technology for remote attendance.
The 2017 Call for Nominations for Council Members is now closed.
The following six candidates have each been nominated by five members in good standing for the five available council positions.
