A delegation from the Korea Institute of Registered Architects (KIRA) met with NCARB leadership in Washington, DC, on 17 May 2012 to learn more about NCARB’s structure and its role in regulating the practice of architecture in the United States.
In preparation for launching the Korea Architects Registration Board (KARB), under the Ministry of Lands, Transport and Maritime Affairs (MLTM), KIRA is looking to NCARB for assistance on how to define KARB’s role in regulating and serving the profession in Korea.
“For nearly 100 years, NCARB has played a leading role in the regulation of the practice of architecture in the United States., and we are honored to share our expertise with other countries, like Korea, that are looking to establish an effective and successful regulatory model,” said President/Chair of the Board Scott C. Veazey, AIA, NCARB.
As part of their information gathering mission, KIRA’s President and other key leadership sought to understand the function of NCARB in relation to the 54 architectural registration boards that are its members, the services NCARB provides to the profession, the role NCARB plays in continuing education, and the relationship NCARB has with other architectural organizations both within and outside the United States.
