Washington DC—Robert A. Meyer, AIA, of Manchester Center, VT, was installed on the Board of Directors for the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) during the organization's June 2006 Annual Meeting and Conference in Cincinnati, OH.
As the director for Region 1 (New England Conference), Meyer represents the following U.S. jurisdictions: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. The New England Conference elected Meyer director in March 2006 during its spring meeting in Tucson, AZ.
Since the early 1980s, Meyer has worked on a number of public projects in the greater Manchester area, including the Winhall Public Library, the American Museum of Fly Fishing, Factory Point National Bank of Rutland, the Killington Medical Center, and the redevelopment of the Royal Square Shopping Center in Brattleboro. He currently is president of Meyer Architecture & Planning, PC. In the mid-1990s, he spent two years working as a staff architect and project designer for Angerstein & Partner Architects in Muenster, Germany.
For more than five years, Meyer has lent his knowledge and expertise to the Architect Registration Examination (ARE) Subcommittee as a group coordinator and item writer. The ARE is a nine-division test developed by NCARB, which is taken by all architects in the United States and Canada seeking registration.
Meyer was first appointed to the Vermont Board of Architects in 2000 by then-Governor Howard Dean. Now in his second term, Meyer has served as board chair and secretary. Meyer earned a bachelor of arts degree from Duke University and a master of architecture degree from the University of Pennsylvania. He also is a graduate of Deerfield Academy. Meyer is registered to practice architecture in five states (Connecticut, Florida, New Hampshire, New York, and Vermont), and he holds the NCARB Certificate for national reciprocity.
Beyond his professional responsibilities, Meyer has served as a trustee of the Regional Affordable Housing Corporation, which creates and provides affordable housing in southern Vermont. He also is an active member of the Israel Congregation of Manchester where he has served as treasurer and currently is on the board of directors.
