The meeting was called to order at 9:05 a.m. by Chair, Stan Cole.  

Moved by Mr. Hudson that the minutes of December 20, 2002 meeting be approved as submitted.  Seconded by Mr. Latham, carried. 

Ms. Jacobsen gave a report on the legislative session.  She reported that the Boards legislation to require continuing education has passed and will become effective July 1, 2003.  The proposed amendment adding the building site language to the scope of practice was stricken.  The Board can now prepare and promulgate rules that will make continuing education a requirement for renewal of license effective July 1, 2004.



Moved by Mr. Hudson that Nicholas Latham be Chair and that Nels Reese be Vice-Chair for the next year.  Seconded by Mr. Nelson, carried. 

Mr. Reese reported on his attendance at the IDP meeting with NCARB in Louisville.  He felt the meeting provided him with valuable information to carry on as the IPD Board liaison.   

Discussion was held on the rules for continuing education.  For consideration was eight hours of Health, Safety, and Welfare, AIA approved or as otherwise approved by the Board.  The Board requested that the renewal notices for this year’s renewal include a reminder that next year it will be required to have the continuing education.  Discussion will continue during the next meeting of the Board. 

Discussion was held on adding a student or intern member to the Board.  The change would require a statute change.  It was felt that a student or intern would not have the knowledge of the Boards duties and so they decided not to pursue this change. 

Mr. Nelson presented a paper, dealing with people practicing architecture without benefit of an architect license, to the Board.  The Board discussed various avenues to explore to deal with this issue. 

Mr. Hetrick presented the financial report.  The remaining appropriation balance for this fiscal year is $2651.84, which will have to cover the Board until June 30th.  The budget procedure was explained to the Board.  Mr. Hetrick explained that travel expenses are one of the few items that the Board has control over.  As an example the Board could choose to send only some of its members to national meeting.  Mr. Reese stated that the national meetings are very beneficial and assist the Board in carrying out their responsibilities. 

Mr. Hetrick presented the investigative report.  There were four complaints received this fiscal year and they are under investigation.  There are two complaints still under investigation from FY 2002. 

Discussion was held on the proposed newsletter.  Mr. Giltzow will present his ideas to the Board during the next schedule meeting.  This newsletter or annual report can be posted on the web page to keep costs to a minimum. 

A request from Robert Visser of Visser Architects regarding tenure status was read.  The Board requested that a letter be sent to Mr. Visser explaining the laws and rules do not address tenure status. 

Moved by Mr. Latham that Mr. Nelson be the Idaho Boards designated delegate for the NCARB meeting in June.  Seconded by Mr. Reese, carried.  Moved by Mr. Reese that travel to the NCARB meeting in June to San Antonio be reimbursed for the Board members and Ms. Jacobsen, with rental cars not being reimbursed.  Seconded by Mr. Latham, carried. It was noted that, depending on available appropriation, reimbursements for the June NCARB meeting in San Antoine might not be processed until July.   

The next meeting of the Board will be held in Moscow on May 2nd.  Moved by Mr. Latham that expenses and travel for the Board and appropriate staff be reimbursed.  Seconded by Mr. Hudson, carried. 

Letter from Ronald Armstrong regarding corporate practice was read.  The Board requested that the letter be referred to Roger for a response.  

The Board will meet September 12, 2003 in Boise. 

Applications were reviewed.  There were eight application approved to begin the ARE exam process; nine licenses approved by endorsement; and three applicants that had completed all nine sections of the ARE exam approved for licensure. 

Meeting adjourned
