Coordinators from across the country will gather in Miami, FL, this week for the 2013 Intern Development Program (IDP) Coordinators Conference. Held jointly by the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) and the American Institute of Architects (AIA), the conference brings together the IDP coordinators of schools, states, and firms to explore best practices for facilitating the flow of information to architecture students and interns.
Throughout the conference, attendees will learn about the latest licensure requirements, future versions of the Architect Registration Examination (ARE), the IDP reporting process, and much more.
Architecture students and interns are encouraged to attend our outreach event on Thursday night where NCARB experts will address a variety of licensure-related topics.
Innovative Perspectives on Licensure and IDP
In a continued effort to explore blue-sky ideas related to licensure, attendees will hear from a host of emerging professionals and experienced architects:
- Members of the 2012 Intern Think Tank will present their visions for a reimagined licensure process.
- Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) architecture student and former game design student will share an update on their 2012 NCARB Award-funded project, Disentanglement and Gates: An Interactive Game of Architecture Practice.
- A panel of AIA Component executives will demonstrate how they facilitate community engagement.
- The University of Minnesota’s educator coordinator will share how the university’s innovative architecture program integrates IDP and licensure rules.
Coordinators will also hear from NCARB President Blakely C. Dunn, AIA, NCARB; AIA President Mickey Jacob, FAIA; and NCARB CEO Michael J. Armstrong.
NCARB will be posting regularly on its website and social media pages throughout the week. We will be using the hashtag #IDPCC. Be sure to join the conversation!
