This summer, Professor Rocco Ceo, founder of U-SoA’s Design Build program, spent 2 days in Chicago at the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB) ARForum 19 meeting with the Forum’s Steering Committee and Task Force to review Draft 0 of the 2020 Conditions and Procedures for Architecture Accreditation.  In addition to the Steering Committee and Task Force, ARForum 19 included the participation of guests and the leadership of the four collateral organizations: NCARB, AIA, ACSA, AIAS. Professor Ceo is a NAAB Board Member and a part of the ARForum 19 Task Force, charged with drafting the new NAAB Procedures for Accreditation, an effort that has been underway for more than 18 months.  Additionally, Professor Ceo was chosen by the NAAB Executive Committee to be part of a select team to write the final draft of the Conditions and Procedures for Accreditation. The new NAAB Conditions and Procedures will set the standards for all accredited architecture programs, and those seeking accreditation, in the United States.  The NAAB Conditions and Procedures for accreditation are updated every six years.
