  • IMPORTANT:  Registration Renewals Continue -   All West Virginia registrations expired on June 30, 2019 if they were not renewed during the month of June.  Beginning on July 1, 2019, architects are able to continue to execute a late renewal, provided that they have not practiced as defined by W.Va. rule and Code during the period the license was inactive.  Online renewals are available using the registrant login on the homepage.  Architects use their four-digit certificate number and the last four digits of their Social Security Numbers to login.  Make sure to update contact information at this time and print your receipt.  Paper renewal forms are still available under the Forms tab.
  • MEETING DATE CHANGED - The Board Meeting scheduled for September 19, 2019 has been rescheduled for October 3, 2019 due to a conflict with the West Virginia Purchasing Conference.  (Effective 7/30/19)
