NZRAB and Membership Bodies
The New Zealand Registered Architects Board (NZRAB) is a statutory board tasked with registering, monitoring and, if need be, disciplining architects.
This is done to protect the public, which in turn protects the reputation of the architectural profession.
The NZRAB is required to review architects every five years to make sure that they still meet the minimum standard for continued registration. A record of CPD participation is one of the ways that architects being reviewed provide evidence that they meet the standard.
MEMBERSHIP BODIES FOR ARCHITECTS
The New Zealand Institute of Architects (NZIA) is a professional body that represents architects and promotes architecture to the public.
The New Zealand Institute of Architects provides CPD Events and manages the NZIA CPD Industry Provider’s Network.
Another professional body that promotes architecture to the public is ADNZ. ADNZ is also a CPD provider.
There may be other membership bodies that architects may find value in joining.
