Wyoming Board of Architects and Landscape Architects
Creation of the Board
The Wyoming Legislature created the Wyoming State Board of Architects in 1951 to protect the welfare of the public by regulating the practice of architecture. The Wyoming Legislature added the regulation of Landscape Architects to the practice act in 1991 and changed the Board's name to the Wyoming State Board of Architects and Landscape Architects. More information about the Board can be found in a summary of the Board's History.
The Board is not the same as the American Institute of Architects or the American Society of Landscape Architects. The Board does not advocate on behalf of the licensees or these professions, but on behalf of the public consumer. While the Board and the associations may collaborate, their roles are different.
The Wyoming State Board of Architects and Landscape Architects contributes to the public health, safety, and welfare, and actively provides regulation of licensure, advocacy and education for the practice of Architects and Landscape Architects in the State of Wyoming.
Protect the Wyoming public’s health, safety and welfare of the natural and built environment through:
Raising awareness of the value of licensed professionals
Improving continuing education for Architects and Landscape Architects in Wyoming
