AIBC Executive Director Michael Ernest Architect AIBC Set to Retire
September 24, 2014
After over five years at the helm of the AIBC as executive director, Michael Ernest Architect AIBC announced he will be leaving his position effective no earlier than October 31, 2014 and no later than January 31, 2015.
The announcement, made at this year’s annual meeting, was met with thunderous applause in recognition of Mike’s outstanding contribution, passion and dedication.
Mike has been a part of the fabric of the AIBC and the British Columbia architectural community at large since the 1970s. He has filled numerous roles during his long-standing commitment to the profession: registered architect, principal, oral reviewer, committee member, councilor, council vice-president, registrar, adjunct professor, director of professional practice, CCDC chairman and executive director, to name but a few.
With his thoughtful approach and collaborative style of leadership, the AIBC is in an ideal position as it forges ahead during these exciting times. We are grateful for his dedicated service. Mike is fully supportive of a smooth handoff of operational matters.
The AIBC Council through its Operational Constraints Committee will oversee the transition.
AIBC registrants are invited to celebrate Mike’s career at the AIBC at a reception in his honour to be held during the AIBC Annual Conference Shifting Perspectives. The reception will be followed by a showing of the film If You Build It.
I look forward to seeing you there.
Scott Kemp Architect AIBC
AIBC Council President
