NCARB Volunteers Collaborate on Key Programs

Each year, nearly 300 volunteers—including licensure candidates, architects, and educators—help NCARB develop and maintain our major programs and initiatives. On December 1-2, 2017, volunteers from eight of NCARB’s committees, task forces, and work groups gathered in Louisville, KY, for our annual Committee Summit.

For the second year in a row, members of NCARB’s FY18 Think Tank had the opportunity to engage with volunteers at the summit to provide feedback on NCARB’s programs from the licensure candidate’s perspective.

Think Tank Collaboration

Members of the Think Tank sat down with the Education and Experience Advisory committees to provide feedback on key elements of the path to licensure, including how NCARB can better support diversity in the profession.
