  • All interviews for June will be held at the APC Annual Conference and will be limited to the first 48 candidates with completed applications (excluding subsequent appearances) that request an in-person interview. All other candidates, including subsequent appearance candidates will be scheduled for virtual interviews in July (dates to be determined)
  • Interviews will be limited to 120 candidates for the February and October periods.
  • Interviews will be held in the timeframe noted, but candidates will not be assigned an exact date and time until 5 weeks prior to the interview.

  • Completed subsequent appearance applications must be received in the BCCI office by the deadline – not postmarked by the deadline.
