Lay Councillors Appointed to Council

As registrants may be aware, the incoming Professional Governance Act requires lay councillors as part of Council.  Accordingly, in July 2020, the provincial government appointed three lay councillors: Brock Endean, Matthew Voell, and Aiden Wiechula, RPF.   Please join us in welcoming them to BCIA.
