The Institute is looking to expand its roster of volunteer architects to serve as Oral Review Panelists. The Oral Review is a crucial step in the process for intern architects and Broadly Experienced Applicants to register as an architect 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. This is an ideal opportunity to stay updated on current issues and to help applicants in becoming future architects.
Interested volunteer candidates should possess the following qualifications:
- Be a registered Architect AIBC in good standing or Retired Architect AIBC for 2 years or less.
- Have approximately 3–5 years’ experience practicing architecture.
- Possess a broad understanding of the practice and regulation of architecture in B.C.
- Possess strong communication skills.
The benefits and time commitment of this particular committee include:
- This position does not require a monthly commitment and offers flexibility in terms of the volunteer’s level of commitment due to the schedule of Oral Reviews, which are held three times per year (March, June and November).
- Oral Reviewers assist with one to three evenings between the hours of 5 p.m. and 9 p.m.
- Oral Reviewers receive a complimentary dinner and a reimbursement for parking costs.
- Oral Reviews take place at the centrally located offices of the AIBC.
- Oral Reviewers, like all AIBC committee volunteers, are eligible to receive Non-core Learning Unit credit for their service.
Interested candidates are invited to contact Michaela Bogart, Human Resources Specialist, at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
