Council Rules 5 | Council Rules 6 | Council Rules 9
The revisions to Council Rules 5 and 6 are intended to enhance the Continuing Education System Program and facilitate compliance.
Council Rules 5 now outline several enhancements and changes to the Continuing Education System, such as clarification of the CES audit and further defining the consequences of non-compliance during this process, the reduction of allowable carry forward of Core Learning Units, and introduction of Intern Architects AIBC to the CES program.
Council Rules 6 include the addition of rules related to CES non-compliance and disciplinary action for Intern Architects AIBC and Architectural Technologists AIBC.
Council Rules 9 cover separate subject-matter pertaining to the administration of AIBC chapters. The Rules are largely based on the Chapter Guidelines, in place since early 2017, as well as the repealed chapter bylaws which included chapter formation, membership matters, and reporting requirements.
