Come on, Donald, you sound like PollyAnna! NCARB has one primary function for expereienced architects.-- to collect and distribute information about the professional backgrounds of regieterd architects who seek to become registerd in other states. Their's is NOT a function of evaluation-- that belongs to the states-- nor exclusion. They are NOT decision makers, but a clearinghouse for the transfer of technical [not personal activity]information. They should set no criteria,and the various state boards should stick to their state laws in regard to the parameters imposed. They also need to learn that they are a "service" organziation, and get off the combative attitude they hold to.
NCARB is a "loose cannon" with no oversight by others. Thye have screwed up the A.R.E. causing all too graduates many to avoid it, and the IDP of their's is a shambles. They pay attention to conceptual and nonsensical issues and too little to things that really matter-- like making themselves better. Gosh, and all that from any agency charged to "assist and aid" the profession.
