BC Land Summit Society
The concept of the BC Land Summit emerged from discussions between several land use professions, which were facilitated through a professional roundtable. The mutual benefits of collaborating on a joint conference were soon apparent, and a decision to proceed was taken by a number of the participating professions.  The current members of the BC Land Summit Society include:

  • The Appraisal Institute of Canada – BC
  • The British Columbia Institute of Agrologists
  • The British Columbia Society of Landscape Architects
  • The Planning Institute of British Columbia
  • The Real Estate Institute of British Columbia
