yes this is true.
the NCARB is a de-facto National Licensing board.
one can not practice in any state without their approval.
the states want their cake and eat it too.
it is a double tax to be an architect you pay the state fee for a license and then you pay the NCARB for whatever they do.
also one can never get through to the NCARB when one has a problem.
we as architects should only be dealing with the individual states for registration (that's states rights) and not NCARB.
if states registration boards want to share information with each other then fine do it on their dime.
however, in the current setup, the NCARB is acting as the national licensing board. Therefore, we have a National license which should be regulated by the Federal Government.
the states cannot have it both ways ---- write your state officials please and ask them to revoke this "unconstitutional" system.
you have much to gain
