Rob Meyer, AIA named Regional Chair of NECARB
Manchester VT: December 28, 2005--Robert Meyer, the President of Meyer Architecture and Planning, P.C. of Manchester, Vermont has been named the Chair of The New England Conference of Architectural Registration Boards, the Northeastern representative of NCARB, the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards, a national organization of 55 Member Boards that regulates the Architectural profession. NCARB's mission is to work as a council of member boards to safeguard the heath, safety, and welfare of the public and to assist member boards in carrying out their duties. NCARB develops and recommends standards to be required of applicants for architectural registration; develops and recommends standards regulating the practice of architecture; provides a certification process and architect registration requirements to member boards; and represents the interests of member boards before public and private agencies. Architects who have met the education, training, and exam requirements as set forth by the NCARB are eligible to qualify for NCARB certification, which enables interstate reciprocity and practice in all jurisdictions.
Passing the nine-division Architects Registration Exam (ARE) is often the final step toward earning registration in all U.S. and Canadian jurisdictions. Individuals, who pass the rigorous examination developed and administered by the organization after having met the education and internship requirements, qualify for the NCARB Certificate that demonstrates their competence to practice nation-wide. NCARB is therefore charged with protecting the public health, safety and welfare. Meyer is directly involved in the development and the creation of the ARE examination which includes sections on Site Planning, Building Planning, Building Technology, Pre-Design, Structural Systems, Mechanical Systems, Building Design - Materials and Methods, and Construction Documents and Services.

Jim Douglas, has served as Secretary of the board since 2002, and was named chair in October of 2005.
