For a limited time, NCARB is waiving reactivation fees for architects and licensure candidates with an inactive Certificate or Record. Just pay the standard renewal fee now through June 30, 2023! 
As of April 25, 2023, U.S. architects can take advantage of a new mutual recognition agreement to earn reciprocal licensure in the United Kingdom.
We spoke with architect Julia Oderda, AIA, about her path to licensure, how she navigated the process of coming out at her firm, and what other firms can do to support trans architects.
NCARB has refreshed the “Education” tab in My NCARB, providing a refreshed look and feel and an improved user experience.
