Seminars & Events

Professional development is an important step to enhance your career and professional growth. AIC-BC, in partnership with the Appraisal Institute of Canada, offers conferences, professional practice seminars, courses, webinars, and other events to help their members stay leading edge within the valuation profession and real estate sector.

The AIC-BC continues to monitor the situation and orders surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.  To support the health and safety of AIC-BC Members and to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, all AIC-BC in-person events have been postponed until further notice.  AIC-BC will work with Chapters over the coming months to transition annual meeting and education opportunities into virtual format.  During these unprecedented times, AIC-BC is committed to delivering the information that Members need through webinar events, newsletters and email, and social media channels. Please check back for more updates.

For a complete listing of upcoming provincial and national events, please see the list of events below.

Professional Practice Seminars

PPS Classroom Seminars & AIC-BC Events

AIC-BC is committed to the health and wellness of its staff, Members, and the community overall.

In November 2021, the AIC-BC Board of Directors passed a motion allowing the return of in-person events and while we are starting to see some return to “normal”, there is still uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, going forward, all AIC-BC hosted, in-person events will be held at venues which align with all Provincial and regional Public Health regulations relating to COVID-19.

AIC-BC Members are reminded of the deadline to complete the 2022 AIC Professional Practice Seminar for the 2022-2023 CPD Cycle.  Members must register and complete their PPS session by March 15th, 2023.

AIC-BC is committed to delivering programs and services to its Members.  AIC-BC Committees and Chapters hope to plan and offer an array of virtual webinars and events in 2022/23.  Please visit the AIC-BC Seminars and Events page and stay connected through AIC-BC’s social media channels and monthly Member Bulletins for updates.

AIC-BC will be hosting limited classroom sessions in this CPD cycle.  Watch your email for registration information and ensure to sign up early to avoid disappointment.
