Designers who have received ABA accreditation through a program known as the Accredited Architect Program, or ABA, have been able to continue to work in the profession for decades.
ABA’s Board of Directors has repeatedly called on the industry to expand the program to include more accredited designers.
In recent months, the ABA has also been working to broaden the scope of the AASA’s accreditation of designers.
The ABA recently held a three-day meeting with industry stakeholders, including some of the world’s leading design firms.
In an update on the meeting, the board said ABA had decided to expand its ABA program to incorporate design firms with ABA Accredited Design accreditation, which allows the designers to continue working in the industry while being subject to rigorous requirements.
The ABA is also working to expand a program that helps to prepare architects for the job market.
In its 2016 report, the AAAS said that design firms have an overall advantage when it comes to attracting top talent.
They have a large pool of qualified applicants, an educated workforce, and high retention rates, the report said.
The AAAS also said that a large number of ABA designers have applied to the AAVC, the association that oversees the AMA program, to join the profession, and that many of those designers are doing well.ABA, which has a membership of more than 2,200 design firms in the U.S., Canada and Europe, has a long history of accrediting and promoting design, according to the AABA’s website.
The program was established in 1971, and it began to expand in 1982.
