In May 2011 Scott C. Veazey '74 was elected first vice president/president-elect of the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) at its 91st Annual Meeting and Conference in San Francisco. Veazey assumed the NCARB presidency in July 2011.
Veazey was also presented with the NCARB President’s Medal for Distinguished Service at the Annual Meeting. He was honored for his significant contributions to the protection of the public’s health, safety, and welfare through his service to NCARB and to the practice of architecture.
Veazey was first elected to the NCARB Board of Directors by his colleagues from the Mid- Central Conference (representing the U.S. jurisdictions of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, and Wisconsin) as the Region 4 director from 2005-2007. The Council as a whole recognized his leadership skills by electing him secretary in 2007, treasurer in 2008, and second vice president in 2009.
For more than 25 years, Veazey has been a proactive member of numerous Council committees. He is currently the chair of the Transition Task Force, which is in charge of finding the next chief executive officer of the Council. He has also served as co-chair of the Intern Development Program (IDP) Coordinating Committee; Board liaison to the Member Board Executives Committee, the Committee on the IDP, and the Committee on Professional Conduct; and member of the most recent Practice Analysis Task Force.
Veazey’s long commitment to the Architect Registration Examination® (ARE®), the multi-division test developed by NCARB and taken by all candidates seeking architectural registration in the United States, began in 1993 when he served on the ARE Design Grading Committee. In 1994, he was named to the ARE Subcommittee to write questions for the Construction Services & Documents division. By 2000, Veazey was assigned to the ARE Grading Subcommittee, where he served as a member and then chair, from 2002-2004.
Veazey’s commitment to the profession goes beyond his work with NCARB. He served as a member of the Indiana Board of Registration for Architects and Landscape Architects for 15 years, and was chair of the board from 1993-1994 and from 1997-1999.
For more than 30 years, Veazey has been affiliated with VPS Architecture, where he currently serves as chief operating officer. Located in Evansville, IN, the firm is a regional leader in the design of learning environments. As managing partner, Veazey has worked on a wide range of projects, including public education facilities, libraries, churches, and financial institutions.
Veazey earned a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Kentucky and a Master of Architecture from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He holds the NCARB Certificate for national reciprocity and is registered to practice in Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, and Ohio.
