Joe Sliwka, Commissioner, Occupational and Professional Licensing

As we are winding down the days of the 2007 legislature, I would like to give you a brief update of the proposed bills as they relate to the Design Boards.  House Bill 413 concerns the State Board of Professional Engineers.  It repeals the board’s authority to issue limited licenses.  It has been found that it is easier and cheaper to get a reciprocal license than to file and apply for a temporary one. The bill was put forth by the industry and was heard in the House Economic Matters Committee. The Committee has given it a favorable report.  It will be sent to the full House for a vote.

There are also two other pieces of legislation that I would like to discuss.  One is Senate Bill 88.  Senate Bill 88 has to do with the elimination of the rolling clock for prospective licensees taking the Architectural Registration Exam (A.R.E.).  There is also departmental legislation that will be introduced to recommend keeping the Design Boards’ special funding for another five years.  As of this writing, hearing dates have not been established for these bills, but we are actively preparing to aggressively pursue passage of both bills. 

By March 27, 2007, all five Design Boards will have taken final action on a regulation to reduce fees for the Design Boards from $78 to $68.   This is a reflection of the surplus in the Special Design Boards Fund.  Special funding means all licensing fees are designated solely for the operation of the Design Boards.  This move was recommended by the Chairs of the Joint Design Boards and was then presented to respective individual boards.  Final action by the boards should be completed by March 27.  In an economy where prices are always going up, I am sure that licensees will welcome a $10 dollar fee reduction.

Finally, I would like to thank Certified Interior Design Chair Carol Doering who resigned January 10th, 2007 to relocate to Florida.  Carol was appointed to the Board on July 1, 1987 and was elected Chair May 12, 2004.  We will miss her and we wish her the very best in her future endeavors.

DLLR CELEBRATES BLACK HISTORY MONTH
A SALUTE TO AFRICAN AMERICAN ARCHITECTURAL PIONEERS

by Janine S. McDonald


San Bernardino City Hall If you do a little bit of research, you will find that there are some African American architects who have made contributions to the architectural community since the late 1800s.  Take Norma Merrick Sklarek (1928- ), for example.  In 1954, she became the first female African American to be licensed in the United States as an architect with the American Institute of Architects (AIA). She later accomplished another first in 1985, becoming the first female African American architect to form her own architectural firm.  Among Sklarek's designs are City Hall in San Bernardino, California; the Fox Plaza in San Francisco; Terminal One at the Los Angeles International Airport and the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo.

Jewel Vertner Woodson Tandy (1885-1949) also accomplished some architectural firsts.  He became the first registered African American architect in New York state and the first African American to belong to AIA.  He helped his father build and develop homes in Lexington, Ky. at an early age and thus had a role model as an inspiration to professionally pursue architecture.  One of the first African Americans to graduate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in architecture, Mr. Tandy previously studied under Booker T. Washington at Tuskegee Institute.  He is also credited with designing landmark homes for some of the wealthiest residents of Harlem, a bustling hub of learning and culture in the early to mid-1900s.

Then there is the McKissack family, predecessors of the present-day architectural firm McKissack & McKissack, opened in 1905.  Moses McKissack was sold into bondage to William McKissack and as a slave learned to be a master builder, a trade passed down through the family to Moses III, born in 1879.  It was Moses III who would eventually join his brother, Calvin to form the Nashville, Tn. firm of McKissack & McKissack.  The company received national recognition in 1942 when it secured the largest federal contract ever granted to an African American company for the 99th Pursuit Squadron Air Base in Tuskegee, Alabama.  Family members continue to be a part of the firm which has designed thousands of facilities since the early 20th century.

African American architects have set examples of dedication and paved the way for others to follow in their footsteps. Norma Merrick Sklarek, Jewel Vertner Woodson Tandy and the McKissack family, we salute you!

ENGINEERING LICENSURE TURNS 100 YEARS OLD

2007 marks the 100th anniversary of engineering licensure in the United States.  The National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) is celebrating this milestone by recognizing the successes of licensure’s past and preparing for its future.

NCEES President Louis Raimondi, P.E., L.S., sees the celebration as an ideal platform to broaden outreach to the general public who may know little about what professional engineers (P.E.’s) do, but who benefit greatly from their commitment to excellence.  “The 100th anniversary of licensure is an opportunity to raise awareness about the value of licensure,” says Raimondi.  “Licensure requires engineers and surveyors to prove themselves and holds them accountable.”

National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES)

The history of licensure goes back to 1907 when Wyoming State Engineer Clarence T. Johnson found many engineers lacked the training necessary to be competent in the field.  Johnston addressed the problem by preparing a bill to mandate registration and to create a board of examiners.  The Wyoming legislature passed the bill into law, creating the first U.S. engineering licensure law.  Other states soon followed.  A decade later, the organization known as NCEES was created to regulate the engineering and surveying professions.  The non-profit organization today is a pivotal element in ensuring that the nation’s infrastructure and complex technologies run safely and efficiently.

As it celebrates 100 years of licensure, NCEES remains focused on finding new ways to fulfill its vision of providing leadership in licensure. In reaching out to the next generation of engineers, NCEES launched several initiatives including a campaign targeted at undergraduate engineering students.  The theme—Finish it!—encourages students to begin the process by taking the FE exam to raise awareness about the opportunities licensure will bring to their careers.

NCEES is also reaching out to younger students. Since 2004, it has worked with the National Engineers Week Future City Competition. The nationwide engineering education program involves more than 30,000 middle school students and gives insight to the engineering design process. NCEES is a major sponsor of Design Squad, a new reality TV series aimed at nine- to 13-year-olds and their families. The program debuted nationwide on PBS in February during Engineers Week 2007.  You can find more information about Design Squad, including downloadable event guides, by visiting www.pbskids.org/designsquad at the PBS Web site.

NEW CLARB GRADING AND DRAINAGE COURSE ADDRESSES NEEDS OF YOUNG PROFESSIONALS

The Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards (CLARB) announces the debut of its newest Web-based course: “Fundamentals of Grading and Drainage.” The “C2Ed.” course is designed to meet the needs of young professionals who have limited practical experience in performing site grading plans and is available at: www.c2ed.com.

The Landscape Architect Registration Examination (L.A.R.E.) is designed to determine whether applicants possess sufficient knowledge, skills and abilities to provide landscape architectural services and protect the health and safety of the public. Successful completion of the L.A.R.E. is required for licensure as a landscape architect in the majority of states.

The new grading and drainage course will help young professionals gain the experience they need to be successful in passing the L.A.R.E.

“We have heard from many exam candidates that they don’t get enough practical experience in grading and drainage in school or in the early stages of their careers,” explained CLARB’s Interim Executive Director, Bob Van Hook. “We want to give L.A.R.E. candidates the tools they need to succeed.”

CLARB partnered with University of Arkansas Associate Professor Mark Boyer to create this course that teaches the fundamental skills needed to understand topography and land signatures. In the course, Boyer gives practical lessons on calculating slopes, manipulating landforms, assigning spot elevations, accurately locating contour lines, and sizing storm drainage pipes.

DESIGN BOARDS FINALIZE FEE REDUCTION
by Janine S. McDonald

Single entities within the Design Boards are finalizing the October 17, 2006 resolution the Joint Chairs Group of the Design Boards passed urging the five design boards to reduce their current licensing fees by $10, from $78 to $68 for two years.

Although the Joint Chairs Group voted in favor of the resolution at its October 17 meeting, it is necessary for single boards to individually approve the recommendation.  The Board for Professional Land Surveyors took its final vote Feb. 7; the Board for Professional Engineers voted Feb. 8; the Board of Architects voted February 28; the Board of Certified Interior Designers voted March 27.  The Board of Examiners of Landscape Architects takes its final vote March 26.

The impact of the fee reduction on the surplus of the special fund will become apparent over the next one to two years.  It is anticipated that the measure will decrease the size of surplus monies without causing a funding shortage.  The Design Boards will monitor the fund to determine if the fee reduction favorably meets its objective--to maintain financial integrity of the fund without compromising the Group’s responsibility to successfully serve licensees, certificate holders and the general public.

SURVIVING PLAN REVIEW SEMINAR ANNOUNCED


The Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute (MFRI)

The Maryland Fire and Rescue Institute (MFRI), the state’s comprehensive training and education system for emergency response personnel, announces its one-day seminar, Surviving Plan Review, to be held May 2, 2007 at the MFRI headquarters on the campus of the University of Maryland-College Park.  This all-day workshop is intended for architects, fire protection engineers, interior designers, and plan review specialists who submit plans and drawings to code officials.  The class will help such design professionals to give them the information they need to submit complete and accurate plan documents.  It will also give plan reviewers a chance to identify their needs and requests in helping to obtain more successful plan approvals.  Finally, the event offers designers and reviewers alike an opportunity for professional networking.

The $30 fee includes lunch and payment for continuing education units (CEUs).  Please check with your particular licensing board to find out if this course qualifies for CEU credit.  You may visit www.mfri.org for more information about this event.
