Since 2011, the AIBC has been engaged in a comprehensive bylaw review process to address both substantive bylaw subject matter areas and more routine amendments. The Bylaw Review Committee (BRC), supported by AIBC Council, is now consulting with members on a suite of bylaws related to Council and Institute Governance.
The Council and Institute Governance bylaws are organized into five categories: Institute Seal; Officers and Council; Boards, Task Forces and Committees; Remuneration and Expenses; and Nominations and Elections. Most of the proposed amendments are minor in nature and focus on consistency, clarity, or reduction of unnecessary bylaws. The most substantive amendments relate to improvements to, and simplification of, council election bylaws. An overview of each category, including a PDF of the bylaw amendments and supporting rationales, can be found on the AIBC website.
The consultation period for the Council and Institute Governance Bylaws initiative will run until November 2, 2018. An in-person and online consultation session will be held at the AIBC office at the following time:
Date: Monday, October 22, 2018
Time: 12–1 p.m.
