- The public sector
As part of the National Association, the BC Association of Heritage Professionals (BCAHP) is an active and diverse group of professionals working in the heritage conservation field. Members include archaeologists, architects, building conservation experts, cultural advisors, cultural landscape specialists, engineers, historians, planners and more. Professional BCAHP Members are listed on the Professional Directory of the Canadian Association of Heritage Professionals (CAHP), have access to job and RFP postings, and are a part of a supportive local network of colleagues, growing year on year. More and more municipalities in BC are requiring consultants to be Professional CAHP Members in order to take on heritage-related contracts. BCAHP’s Heritage Professionals Roundtable in May, and its Annual Conference in November, are the ‘go-to’ events for professionals in the heritage conservation field in British Columbia, where the community connects and reflects on the field going forward.
