Association of BC Forest Professionals (ABCFP)
Joint Initiative with the ABCFP
In 2007, the College of Applied Biology of BC and the Association of BC Forest Professionals signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which, in part, sets out the cooperation in areas of practice overlap between the definitions of “applied biology” and the “practice of professional forestry.”
One of the first initiatives of the Joint Committee is the development of Guidance on Providing Professional Advice. These documents are intended to lead to positive outcomes and be helpful to members when they exercise discretion in professional practice. The second document has been completed: Managing Species at Risk.
The College worked jointly with the ABCFP to produce the guidance documents for members of both organizations.
