Position Papers – Associates Resolution Working Group

From AIBC Council
To the Attention of AIBC Members and Associates

Position Papers –
Associates Resolution Working Group

At its strategic planning session in June of 2011, AIBC Council formed the Associates Resolution Working Group. The members of the group are: Gord Richards MAIBC, Paula Grossman MAIBC, Robert Chester MAIBC, Eszter Csutkai MAIBC, Michael Currie AT, Dave Boswell BD and Scott Kemp MAIBC. In 2008, AIBC Council introduced new associate categories in the institute. Some members of the institute support the initiative, others do not. The mandate of the Associate Resolution Working Group is:

“ to develop clear and comprehensive council attitudes and policies respecting:

(a) the present and foreseeable future of associates within the AIBC’s existing legislative framework; and

(b) fundamental beneficial/consequential considerations and transitions apropos associates’ identities/designations/competencies within (a) above.”

Towards that goal, the working group has prepared two position papers (here and here) elaborating the issues involved. The intent is to distribute the papers to the members and elicit feedback.

Also, AIBC Council is in the process of preparing a comprehensive survey of its members. Included in this survey will be questions regarding the associates. An independent consultant has been engaged by the institute and the survey is scheduled to be conducted in June 2012. With the information gained from the survey, the working group will then formulate its final recommendations to council.

The two position papers provided are from the working group, which is still in the process of fulfilling its mandate. AIBC Council has received the position papers but does not endorse either at this time. The position papers are part of council’s and its Associates Resolution Working Group’s process and are distributed herewith for members’ information and to generate dialogue.

Respectfully submitted;

Scott Kemp  Architect MAIBC
AIBC Council member / vice-president
Associates Resolution Working Group chair
