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.

AIC-BC EVENT CANCELLATION POLICY
In-person events organized by the Provincial Association often include venue cancellation
fees or other fees associated with cancellations by registrants. For events where
registrants pay a fee to attend, a cancellation fee may be applied.

~ Registrants who cancel more than seven (7) days prior to an event will be subject to
a $75.00 administration fee.

~ Registrants who cancel within seven (7) days of the event will not be entitled to a
refund.

~ Enrolment that does not meet minimums for cost recovery may result in
cancellation of the event. In this case, registrants will receive a full refund.

Every effort will be made to handle each case fairly. Members who have registered for an event and are unable to attend will be encouraged to find an alternate AIC-BC Member to assign to their registration, if appropriate.
