The AIBC is seeking architects to serve on the Bylaw Review Committee.
The Bylaw Review Committee assists the Institute with the review and modernization of the AIBC Bylaws, thus playing an integral role in the self-regulation of the profession. Since its establishment in 2011, the Committee’s work has included the successful passing of several new bylaws. Most recently, the Bylaw Review Committee completed amendments to the Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct (the “Code of Ethics”) related to advertising; general professional conduct including harassment and discrimination; client confidentiality; and supervision of intern architects.
Given the transition to the Professional Governance Act (the “PGA”), the Bylaw Review Committee will now be focused on the review and development of new AIBC Bylaws and a Code of Ethics that meet the requirements of the PGA, and the AIBC’s public interest and professional regulation mandate.
The AIBC believes the public and the profession are best served by a Bylaw Review Committee that includes members from diverse backgrounds. While all qualified architects are encouraged to consider this opportunity and apply, the Committee especially encourages and invites applications from architects working in larger firms and women architects.
The terms of reference for the Bylaw Review Committee is in the process of being updated to reflect the PGA transition.
