*Please note that this year’s sole intern architect candidate withdrew their nomination prior to the annual meeting. A recommendation from staff will be put forward to council.
The 15-member AIBC Council is comprised of 10 architects (Architects AIBC) who are elected by their peers for two-year terms (five positions in each election year); four Lieutenant Governor Appointees who are non-architect public representatives appointed by the provincial government; and one representative of The University of British Columbia School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture.
Under the Architects Act, one of the first duties of the new AIBC Council is the election of the officers and the appointment of the registrar. A non-voting officer on council, the registrar position must be held by an Architect AIBC. Over the recent past, the position was filled by a councilor although historically it was held by a member of the AIBC staff. This year Joan Hendriks Architect AIBC, who is also the institute’s Director of Registration and Licensing, is appointed as registrar.
The AIBC Council also extends an invitation to guests to sit in a non-voting capacity. The guest positions are: immediate Past-President, Intern Architect Liaison, Architectural Technologist Liaison and Interior Designers Institute of British Columbia (IDIBC) Liaison.
We welcome and look forward to working with the new 2015/2016 AIBC Council.
