NCARB and AIA DC Join Forces for Mentoring Workshop


31 May 2013

NCARB welcomed interns, mentors, and recently-licensed architects to our headquarters Wednesday for a lively discussion about the future of architecture. This month's Mentoring Workshop, titled "Inside NCARB: Licensure, Practice, and the Future," is part of a series organized by the Washington Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA DC).

In a continued effort to engage emerging professionals, NCARB CEO Mike Armstrong gave attendees an inside glimpse of the Council's latest programs and initiatives—covering everything from future visions of the Intern Development Program (IDP) to the next phase of the Architect Registration Examination® (ARE®).

"It was extremely valuable for us at NCARB to interact with interns, recently licensed architects, and mentor/supervisors from the DC area," says Armstrong. "We appreciated the opportunity to demonstrate that we are listening and evolving, and to provide some hands-on customer service. It’s inspiring to see the commitment coming from this generation of emerging professionals."

The workshop culminated with a Q&A session, followed by a tour of the NCARB office. To learn more about the Mentoring Workshop series, visit
