Appointment to the CACB Board of Directors

FBM extends its congratulations to George Cotaras on his appointment to the Canadian Architectural Certification Board (CACB). The CACB elected George, FBM Architect Emeritus and former President, among the three new directors at its November board meeting in Banff.

George’s appointment to the CACB builds on his volunteer work related to professional licensing and certification, which he has undertaken throughout most of his career at FBM. George is a longstanding member of the NSAA Board of Registration, currently serving as Registrar and Councillor. He has been involved with the CACB’s Broadly Experienced Foreign Architects program since its early days, helping build the program and chairing assessment panels.

The CACB is responsible for certifying the educational qualifications of architectural graduates, the accreditation of professional architectural programs at Canadian universities, and the certification of the professional qualifications of broadly experienced foreign architects who have immigrated to Canada. This national Board receives its mandate from the Regulatory Organizations of Architecture in Canada (ROAC) and the Canadian Council of University Schools of Architecture (CCUSA).
