Morning Panel Presentation ‘Public Trust : Ensuring Reliance’  –  11:00 am

The morning Panel Presentation will feature three highly esteemed experts who will bring their perspectives on Professional Reliance:

The BC Government launched the Professional Reliance Review project to address a question of trust of professional reliance in the natural resource sector.  ASTTBC and 4 other Professional Associations were identified and are fully engaged with the initiative.  The Panel will speak to this initiative and to the roles and responsibilities of ASTTBC Members and ASTTBC as a self-governing Professional Association.  The outcomes of the BC Government project will be presented and discussed. It is expected that:


  • The Governments review of Professional Reliance should reveal that Members can and should be allowed to take responsibility to more than is currently the case
  • With more responsibility comes more accountability
  • What does this mean for ASTTBC and what does this mean for Members
