Through NCARB reciprocity agreements, I am eligible for registration as an architect in CA. This would allow me to sign for engineering design? Wow. This is truly shocking. Although my subscription to this list suggests I would have greater than average interest in engineering issues for an architect, there is no possible way that an architect's typical education and experience would qualify him/her for actually practicing engineering. In the past it may have, but certainly not at the present time. Now you have almost scared me out of even visiting CA, or at least staying out of buildings when there ;^) In British Columbia, architects and engineers have a 'memoranda of agreement' to not do each others work, so architects cannot sign for engineering, and engineers cannot design buildings (with some exceptions for industrial type buildings) Maura Gatensby Architect Vancouver, Canada --- Internet Message Header Follows --- Received: from server1.seaoc.org (bqe.com [22.214.171.124]) by host1.texramp.net (8.8.5/8.8.5) with SMTP id VAA03557 for <rlewis(--nospam--at)techteam.org>; Sun, 20 Apr 1997 21:41:44 -0500 (CDT) Received: from yvr.cyberstore.ca by server1.seaoc.org (NTList 3.02.13) id sa019050; Sun, 20 Apr 1997 19:34:55 -0700 Received: from yvr-ppp-33.cyberstore.ca (yvr-ppp-33.cyberstore.ca [126.96.36.199]) by yvr.cyberstore.ca (8.7.2/8.7.3) with SMTP id TAA03910 for <seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org>; Sun, 20 Apr 1997 19:31:47 -0700 (PDT) Date: Sun, 20 Apr 1997 19:31:47 -0700 (PDT) Message-Id: <199704210231.TAA03910(--nospam--at)yvr.cyberstore.ca> X-Sender: seaoc-ad(--nospam--at)seaoc.org Mime-Version: 1.0 Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii" To: seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org From: gatensby(--nospam--at)cyberstore.ca (-==maura==-) Subject: Re: Engineering Issues ad nauseum X-Mailer: <Windows Eudora Version 1.4.2b16> Reply-To: seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org Error-To: seaoc-ad(--nospam--at)seaoc.org X-Loop: seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org X-Info: [SEAOC] Owner: seaoc-ad(--nospam--at)seaoc.org X-POP3-Rcpt: seaoc-ad(--nospam--at)seaoc.org Precedence: list X-ListMember: rlewis(--nospam--at)techteam.org [seaoc(--nospam--at)seaoc.org] __________________________________________________ Richard Lewis, P.E.
