Arne Jorgensen, AIA Awarded the NCARB President’s Medal for Distinguished Service

Arne O. Jorgensen, AIA, LEED AP, NCARB, of Jackson, WY, was recognized for his service to the Wyoming State Board of Architects and Landscape Architects and NCARB, including his significant contributions to several committees. Jorgensen has been a dedicated member of the Wyoming State Board of Architects and Landscape Architects since 2008, including terms as the board’s chair and vice chair. He has also devoted much of his time to NCARB, serving on the Education Committee and the Broadly Experienced Architect Committee, where he served as the chair for four years. Jorgensen was instrumental in shaping the successor to the Broadly Experienced Architect (BEA) Program through his service on the Education Alternative Work Group. He was heavily involved in efforts to analyze and evaluate the licensure requirements for New Zealand and Australia, which led to the approval of the Mutual Recognition Arrangement between NCARB and these countries. He was also instrumental in the pilot test leading to the implementation of the Tri-National Mutual Recognition Agreement.
