On March 9, Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon signed into law SF-0113 The Architects Practice Act – Amendments Bill. See the full text here (https://wyoleg.gov/Legislation/2023/SF0113). ASLA Colorado, with other professional associations, has been working with the board to develop this bill and advocated for its passage during the last year or so.
The Act allows the LA/Architects Licensure Board to improve their expiring-license notification methods and provides a way for the board to fund continuing education courses for licensees. It also brings their licensure law more into alignment with CLARB and NCARB’s universal licensing standards by allowing the board to consider alternative educational/experience/examination paths for applicants to gain licensure.
At the signing ceremony were (photo L to R) Wyoming architect Clint Taylor, AIA of TDSI Architects, David Sprunt, ASLA (past president of and representing ASLA Colorado/Wyoming), Randy Byers AIA of TDSI Architects, Governor Mark Gordon holding the document, bill sponsor and architect Senator Stephen Pappas AIA, Susan Menghini the Executive Director of AIA Wyoming, and Emily Cronbaugh the Executive Director of the Architects and Landscape Architects board.
