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.

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 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.

Speaker

Larry Dybvig, AACI, P.App, Fellow, FRICS
Grover Elliott & Co. Ltd.

Overview
Whether you are a residential or commercial appraiser, a fee or non-fee appraiser, a “harmful” report can cost more than monetary damage. Appraisers should be aware of potential fraud and manipulation in the appraisal reports, in order to protect themselves from potential litigation and insurance claims. This presentation is broken into two webinars covering all essentials for this topic.

This event will be recorded. The slide deck WILL NOT be provided following the webinar.
