A critical part of the equity equation hinges upon the complex process and costs for obtaining Licensure compounded further by the erosion of real and perceived incentives. NCARB by Numbers 2014 provides a glimpse at where the pinch points occur. Our early survey results indicate that beyond pragmatic challenges with the licensure process over the last 15 years, the crux of the problem lies in the current lack of a clear Value Proposition for becoming a licensed architect. For some there is a sense that the process is insurmountable, while others practice award winning architecture under the licenses of their firms with no real incentives to go through the process. In what ways is the current process changing? What is still not working and how do we fix it?  Come prepared to brainstorm new models of valuing licensed professional and equitable paradigms for achieving it. How can we as individuals, firms and the profession provide immediate as well as long term incentives clear to the unlicensed and emerging professionals?
