Nominations are now being accepted for the 2018/19 AIBC Council. This is your opportunity to help shape the work of the body responsible for regulating the profession of architecture in B.C. on behalf of the public.
Please download the 2018/19 Council Election Nominee Information Package. The package contains all the relevant forms, instructions on how to complete a submission, and the Ideal Candidate Nominee Description & Election Process Guide. Prospective candidates are requested to review the package carefully as there are several changes this year.
Completed submissions must be received by the AIBC time stamped before 4 p.m. on Monday, March 12, 2018.
The Role of the Nominations Review Committee
As mentioned in previous communication, the Nominations Review Committee will review candidate submissions to determine whether they align with the attributes and competencies sought for the 2018/19 council. As part of the evaluation process, the Nominations Review Committee will set up interviews with each candidate.
Attributes sought by council candidates every year as well as specific competencies sought for in 2018/19 are outlined in the Nominee Information Package. Members who are considering putting their name forward are encouraged to highlight their regulatory experience, as well as competency in governance, finance, strategic thinking, and other relevant areas.
It is important to note that all eligible candidates will be put forward to the membership for election to council, with those meeting the requirements identified as “endorsed” by the Nominations Review Committee. The ultimate decision on who is elected to council remains with the AIBC’s voting members and honorary members.
For a complete description of the Nominations Review Committee mandate and specific assignments, refer to the Committee Terms of Reference (PDF).
