NCARB Releases Contribution to NAAB 2013 Accreditation Review Conference

7 February 2013

Washington, DC—The National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) has released its contribution the National Architectural Accrediting Boards’ (NAAB) 2013 Accreditation Review Conference (ARC).

NCARB’s paper is based on common threads and recurring themes identified in the data from the 2012 Practice Analysis of Architecture Survey, feedback from the Council’s Education Committee, and “blue-sky” concepts regarding the role of the academy in licensure.

NCARB is seeking to collaborate with Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture (ACSA), American Institute of Architecture Students (AIAS), American Institute of Architects (AIA), and the NAAB to explore new models of the path to licensure that could further blend the existing components of education, experience, and examination with regulation to more effectively prepare the future practitioner and better serve the profession.

The ARC will take place in July 2013. More information can be found at You can download NCARB’s paper here.
