Bylaw Review: Consultation Sessions

Since 2011, the AIBC has been engaged in a comprehensive bylaw review process to address both substantive bylaw subject matter areas and more routine amendments. The Bylaw Review Committee (BRC), supported by AIBC Council, is advancing the following initiative.

Bylaw Amendments: Investigations & Remedial Discipline

This Investigations & Remedial Discipline initiative is a recommendation for a suite of substantive “investigations/discipline” bylaw amendments to more firmly establish the institute’s investigations and disciplinary processes in bylaw. This initiative includes a new ‘remedial discipline’ process intended to give the institute greater flexibility to meaningfully address professional conduct complaints than is currently available.

Read the bylaw amendments and supporting rationales.

Consultation

Consultation for the “investigations/discipline” bylaw amendments will be extending through February 2016, with a submission seeking council’s direction to proceed to a member vote not expected until spring 2016. Increased council participation in the consultation process is planned given the subject matter and importance of this bylaw modernization initiative.

An initial consultation session on the “investigations/discipline” bylaw amendments was held on October 30, 2015 at the AIBC Annual Conference. The session’s primary focus was on the remedial discipline process. Two additional consultation sessions have been scheduled to take place in January: a combined in-person and webinar event at the Vancouver AIBC Office and a second session, in-person only, in Victoria at the Cedar Hill Golf Course. Please see below for attendance details.

Consultation Sessions

Council policy requires member consultation when any bylaw amendments are advanced for member vote. AIBC council invites your participation at the following consultation sessions, which will address the proposed bylaw amendments. The sessions will open with a presentation, followed by a question and answer period.
