The AIBC’s Annual Renewal Cycle happens every year and involves several phases. Beginning in the summer, a mid-year reminder is sent to registrants to review and update their individual information. The Firm Information Update occurs in October, which maintains the integrity of the AIBC Register and ensures accurate invoices. The final phase is the Payment of the Annual Renewal Fee, with the entire Annual Renewal Cycle concluding on February 1.
