Analysis of Practice

Your Profession, Your Story

Share your insight and shape the future of architecture

The latest survey on Licensure Preparation  is now open! Findings will influence updates to national licensing programs and standards. Everyone in the AEC industry is invited to participate.

The Analysis of Practice will help determine what’s next for the architecture profession. Your participation plays a critical role in ensuring it’s as forward-thinking as possible.

What is the Analysis of Practice?

NCARB’s Analysis of Practice will explore the current practice of architecture, as well as what’s on the horizon for the near future. Findings will shape how the regulation of architecture evolves. Over the next several months, we’ll be reaching out to you—the architects, designers, educators, and emerging professionals behind the built environment—to better understand your working life, how you collaborate with others, and where you see the profession going in the years ahead.

Why should I participate?

We understand that every project, firm, and career is unique, and the way you practice depends on a variety of factors—including your personal style. Help us get the biggest picture possible by sharing your perspectives, no matter where you are in your career.

Your insights will shape NCARB’s programs and initiatives over the next several years, as well as the way your local licensing board regulates practice and protects the public's health, safety, and welfare.
