Six committees of the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) came together in San Diego, January 20-21, in a two-day “mega-meeting,” called Com6, to facilitate information exchange and cross-committee relationships.
Com6 allows NCARB to receive feedback and actively review the progress made by these teams. And, the committees—made up of practicing architects and executives from the jurisdictional boards of architecture—are utilized as a sounding board on the work being done for NCARB’s long-range strategic issues.
Held every year, Com6 brings together several NCARB committees—with the goal of providing an opportunity for diverse teams to collaborate more effectively on cross-purposed charges. This meeting is also part of a progression in the development of resolutions that are released to the membership at the regional meetings in the spring, and then brought forward for vote at the NCARB Annual Meeting in June.
“I am very proud of both the quality and quantity of work done in all of our committees,” said NCARB President Scott C. Veazey, AIA, NCARB. “I have enormous respect for the work done by NCARB volunteers—my colleagues in the profession.”
The committees represented at Com6 are:
- Procedures and Documents Committee: Chair David E. Heyne, AIA, NCARB
- Continuing Education Committee: Chair Cheryl Walker, FAIA, NCARB
- Member Board Executives Committee: Chair Kingsley J. Glasgow
- Education Committee: Chair Daniel D. Bennett, FAIA
- Intern Development Program Committee: Chair Susan Schaefer Kliman, Ph.D., AIA
- Examination Committee: Chair John E. Enkemann Jr., AIA, NCARB
“This is the very first chance I have had to engage with the committees and get a sense of the dynamics of the work done,” said Michael Armstrong, NCARB CEO. “I am thoroughly impressed with the thoughtfulness and sincere dedication of our volunteers.”
