Attention students, interns, and architects attending the Texas Architects 74th Convention and Design Expo in Fort Worth, TX, please join NCARB's Internship + Education Manager Martin Smith, AIA, NCARB, LEED Green Assoc. and Texas IDP State Coordinator Gary Dunn, AIA for a presentation title "Building an Architect: Understanding Internship and Licensure."

The rules and requirements for licensure continue to evolve with the architecture profession. Today, the Intern Development Program (IDP) can be completed more efficiently than ever, the Architect Registration Examination® (ARE®) allows more flexibility, and tools such as the NCARB Certificate facilitate mobility.

However, despite the numerous changes, the licensing process still remains daunting and complex for many emerging professionals. Come learn effective strategies for completing this process as seamlessly as possible yourself or aiding the next generation in your firm. Together, we will review the steps necessary to complete the transformation from student to intern to architect in order to get the most out of your career.

Following the presentation, Smith and Dunn will remain on-site to address questions on an individual basis.
