Licensing Board Members Nominate Regional Leadership

As the practice of architecture becomes increasingly mobile, the ability to pursue work across state lines is more important than ever. To encourage national licensing standards and create a forum to share best practices, NCARB’s 55 licensing boards are divided into six regions. This structure enables boards to discuss regional architecture concerns impacting regulation, and develop programs for the benefit of licensing boards, licensure candidates, and architects.

2020 Regional Summit

From March 6-8, board staff and volunteers met in Cambridge, Massachusetts, for the 2020 Regional Summit. During the two-day event, attendees explored national regulatory trends, discussed regional business, heard from candidates running for the FY21 NCARB Board of Directors, and nominated regional leadership.
