Architecture Licensing Board

The first Architect Act enacted on June 3, 1897 was the first licensing law in the nation. Architecture

was included in the scope of the agency upon its creation in 1917. The Board is made up of six

members appointed by the Secretary consisting of four licensed architects with at least ten years of

active practice, one licensed architect who is a tenured member of the architectural faculty of an Illinois

public university accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board, and one public member.

The practice of architecture includes the offering of professional services, such as consultation,

environmental analysis, feasibility studies, programming, planning, etc., in connection with the

construction of any private or public building, building structure, building project or addition or alteration

or restoration. The Board is charged with providing curriculum evaluation, conducting oral interviews,

advising on disciplinary matters and providing expert advice and knowledge on professional conduct

and performance.
