NCARB Launches Blog for Aspiring Architects

Washington, DC—The National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) is excited to announce the launch of NCARB Blog, a social hub where emerging professionals, educators, and practitioners can come together to explore industry trends. Updated weekly, the blog is a resource for the latest news about licensure, innovations in education, cutting-edge technology, and more.

In addition to updates about the Council’s programs and initiatives, the blog will feature guest posts from industry experts and emerging professionals. Through the online community, readers will have access to exclusive videos, photo galleries, and tips they won’t find anywhere else.

In the coming months, guest bloggers will be invited to touch on everything from diversity in the profession, to budgeting for the Architect Registration Examination® (ARE®), to navigating the Intern Development Program (IDP).

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to explore the NCARB Blog—just one of the many resources we’ve developed to help aspiring architects achieve their career goals over the last few years. Check back often for your fill of architectural-related news, inspiration, and conversation.

The National Council of Architectural Registration Boards’ membership is made up of the architectural registration boards of all 50 states as well as those of the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. NCARB assists its member registration boards in carrying out their duties and provides a certification program for individual architects.

NCARB protects the public health, safety, and welfare by leading the regulation of the practice of architecture through the development and application of standards for licensure and credentialing of architects. In order to achieve these goals, the Council develops and recommends standards to be required of an applicant for architectural registration; develops and recommends standards regulating the practice of architecture; provides to Member Boards a process for certifying the qualifications of an architect for registration; and represents the interests of Member Boards before public and private agencies. NCARB has established reciprocal registration for architects in the United States and Canada.
