I'm a little miffed. Recently we were discussing aspects of titles and various other issues and the post was deleted. What happened to discussing points of view? There was no reason given for the thread deletion.
This is the problem, one of many, why I am at odds with the synergistic relationship between the AIA and NCARB. If the two organizations are working together then why is there a divisive philosophy for an extremely important topic - non licensed title use?
NCARB - no use of the word architect or any derivation of the word architecture may be used.
AIA - In 2017 the AIA "Strongly supports two titles: "architectural associate" and "design professional."
As it turns out, the NCARB said no to both titles. So here is the AIA - THE American Institute of Architects - it's primary members being licensed architects, saying that they support 2 titles for non-licensed people. And then the NCARB, it's primary members, Also licensed architects, saying NO to the two titles.
I pay membership to both organizations ( so do many other people ). But why? How can I justify paying for memberships to two organizations that aren't getting a solution to this problem?
I'd like to hear what other people think and how they justify their responses.
