Through the powers vested in the British Columbia Architects Act, the Architectural Institute of B.C. was incorporated in April 1920. An annual meeting was held that same year, making May 6, 2019 the AIBC’s 100th Annual Meeting. This significant milestone will kick off the AIBC’s centenary year, in recognition of the Institute’s decades of regulation.
100th Anniversary Edition of AIBC Logo
To raise awareness of this regulatory milestone over the next year, we have developed a 100th anniversary edition of the AIBC logo. This new logo will be used on all digital communications, social media channels, event branding, and operational documents and letters through to May 2020.
On May 6, 2019, following the 100th Annual Meeting, the AIBC hosted a reception to kick-off the centenary year. Attendees had to opportunity to hear from a number of inspiring speakers, including: Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia, the Honourable Janet Austin, OBC; Council President Danica Djurkovic Architect AIBC; dedicated AIBC volunteer Robyn Fenton Architect AIBC; and AIBC Scholarship winner and UBC student Sarah Klym.
