Get Involved With NCARB

Learn more about our committees and special initiatives.

If you’re an architect, you’re probably familiar with earning continuing education (CE) credits each year to fulfill state and American Institute of Architect (AIA) CE requirements. But you might not be as familiar with the dedicated NCARB volunteers working throughout the year to assure the development of high-quality CE courses on topics ranging from architectural acoustics to historic preservation

Supporting the Education Committee, members of the Continuing Education Subcommittee contribute to the development and evaluation of all continuing education-related initiatives. The subcommittee also collaborates with the AIA to evaluate the Health, Safety, and Welfare (HSW) content of proposed seminars and tours for its annual national convention. 

The CE Subcommittee helps NCARB develop and maintain the quality of the Council’s CE products. The subcommittee also provides quality control to both NCARB and AIA in maintaining high standards for Health, Safety, and Welfare-related courses. This is an enthusiastic group of volunteers who take professional development seriously.

In addition to the CE Subcommittee, NCARB has more than a dozen standing committees, other subcommittees, and task forces that meet throughout the year to support NCARB’s mission. Made up of volunteers at every stage in their architecture careers, these groups contribute to NCARB’s evolution as an organization by working to improve NCARB’s programs and policies—including to remove unnecessary barriers on the path to licensure
