How can I get involved with NCARB?

There are two key ways to get involved with NCARB:

Volunteer for your state licensing board—In most states, board members are appointed by the governor or other local leadership. NCARB regularly updates a list of jurisdictions with open licensing board positions.

Join an NCARB committee—Serving on an NCARB committee is a great way to get involved with licensing boards around the country and hear the latest updates about additional opportunities. Committee members are appointed each spring for the upcoming fiscal year, which runs from July – June. While most committee members are members of state licensing boards, NCARB does publish a call for volunteers to serve on the Think Tank, Re-Think Tank, additional focus groups, and some ARE development-related committees. Learn more about NCARB committees.

Who develops NCARB’s programs?

NCARB works with hundreds of volunteer architects to develop and administer our programs.
