ACSA, AIA, AIAS, NAAB, and NCARB are Looking for Your Feedback

Dear Colleagues:

As presidents of the five architectural collateral organizations, we greatly value your opinions and feedback regarding our programs and policies.

Every five to seven years, the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) has the opportunity to conduct a comprehensive survey of the profession of architecture in order to capture its current realities, and to then synthesize the data to inform its programs and services. This survey, known as the Practice Analysis of Architecture, is available throughout April, either through a direct e-mail invitation from NCARB or on the NCARB website.

The data collected from this survey will be used to inform and guide future decision-making and discussion by NCARB regarding revisions and improvements to the programs that comprise the path to licensure—such as the Intern Development Program (IDP) and the Architect Registration Examination® (ARE®).

Each of our organizations provided representatives to serve on the Practice Analysis Steering Committee, which developed the framework and provided oversight of the content included in this important survey. Educators and interns, in addition to a large sample of architects throughout the United States and Canada, are invited to complete the survey.

We urge you to give back to your profession by taking the time to complete this survey, which should take just under one hour. It is designed to allow you to complete it over several visits, if needed.

This is a unique opportunity to shape the future of your profession. Thank you in advance for the investment of your time and knowledge.
