The AIBC welcomes John Bass, chair of the UBC architecture program, as the newly designated SALA representative on AIBC Council. He began his new role in January 2016, replacing Chris Macdonald who has served on council since 2012 as well as in years prior.
Chris has been a reliable presence on council and at the institute, serving almost 10 years in all. During his time at the AIBC, Chris has sat on multiple boards and committees, including the Registration Board, Annual Conference and Public Outreach committees to name but a few. We greatly appreciate his contributions and commitment to the institute and wish him continued success in his future.
Under the Architects Act, either the director of The University of British Columbia School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture or a full-time member of the faculty nominated by the director, is designated as the representative on AIBC Council.
