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 on a suite of bylaws in two subject areas:
- A series of amendments to certain bylaws in the AIBC’s Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct (“Code of Ethics”). This will be the first phase of a multi-stage update to the Code of Ethics, which will span several bylaw initiatives.
- Routine administrative bylaw amendments to several investigation and discipline bylaws, as well as to the honorary membership voting process.
The Code of Ethics and Administrative Bylaws initiative is organized into three categories: Code of Ethics – Part 1; Investigation and Discipline; and Honorary Members. An overview of each section, including a PDF of the bylaw amendments and supporting rationales, can be found on the AIBC website.
The consultation period for the Code of Ethics and Administrative Bylaws initiative begins on May 9, 2019 and will run until June 27, 2019. An in-person and online consultation session will be held at the AIBC offices at 100-440 Cambie Street, and online, as follows:
- Date: June 11, 2019
- Time: 12–1 p.m.
- Location: In-person (AIBC Office) and online via WebEx
- Learning Units (LUs): 1 Core
- RSVP: In-Person* Session | Online Session. Note: registration closes for both sessions June 10, 2019, at 12 p.m.
*Lunch will be served to those who attend the in-person session from 11:30 a.m.–12 p.m.
A minimum of eight people are required to attend in order for the session to be hosted.
