The 2017 Annual Firm Information Update has officially concluded, with the deadline elapsing on October 13, 2017. We thank the 79% of firms who completed this important regulatory requirement. Your participation keeps firm information current and helps maintain the integrity of the AIBC Register. The information provided during the annual update also ensures the accuracy of annual fee invoicing – members can expect to receive their invoices during the week of November 20, 2017.
While this was a relatively high response rate, 21% of firms did not complete the 2017 Annual Firm Information Update. As a reminder, the annual update is a requirement for all architectural firms, as prescribed in AIBC Bylaw 15.4 (PDF). In addition, Bylaw 34.5 (PDF), Council Rulings 34.5 (f) and (h) (PDF), require architects (and firms) to respond promptly to all AIBC communications requiring a response, and to provide accurate contact information. It is your firm’s professional responsibility to comply with these bylaws and rulings, if only to confirm that the information on record is correct.
Those who failed to complete the Annual Firm Information Update may be subject to disciplinary action.
