Bylaw 10 and Revised AIBC Bulletin 21: Architect AIBC Title
As members are aware, one of the bylaws amended at the May 2012 annual meeting was Bylaw 10, which replaced the initials “MAIBC” with “Architect AIBC” as an architect’s title in British Columbia. AIBC Bulletin 21 has now been updated to reflect this change, and includes guidance as to use of the title, including use with other titles and designations. Bylaw 10 is now in effect, and members are encouraged to amend letterhead, cards, web sites, title blocks and other documents and communication as soon as reasonably possible. If you have questions about the use of the new title, please contact Director of Professional Services Paul Becker Architect AIBC P.Eng. (email@example.com) or General Counsel/Director of Professional Conduct & Illegal Practice Thomas Lutes (firstname.lastname@example.org).
