The AIBC greatly values the generosity and commitment of our many volunteers. They play a critical role in the organization, and we truly appreciate the countless hours that they dedicate to the Institute.
AIBC Oral Reviewers are a great example of volunteers whose service has a direct impact in shaping the future of the profession and strengthening the architectural community. Oral Reviews are a crucial step in the process for intern architects and Broadly Experienced Applicants seeking to register with the AIBC. Reviewers participate in a three person panel to assess and evaluate a candidate’s ability to understand the practice of architecture and how it is carried out and regulated in B.C. Volunteering as an Oral Reviewer is an ideal way to stay up-to-date on current issues and help others become future registered architects.
In 2017, four rounds of Oral Reviews were held in February, June, July and October for a total of 10 evenings, accommodating a record of 88 Intern Architects AIBC and Broadly Experienced Applicant candidates. There were 51 Oral Reviewers who assisted with the process, many of whom attended all four rounds, resulting in 122 evenings volunteered!
The AIBC would like to extend a special thank you to all of those who volunteered as an Oral Reviewer in 2017:

There were also many new and returning Observers who assisted with the 2017 Oral Review. We would like to thank them as well for their service and valued contributions throughout the year.
