The 2009 election

In January 2009 the ARB Reform Group fielded 7 of the 20 candidates.  Of the remainder, only Norman Arnold and Coskun Sanus appeared by their election statements to be aware of the limited scope of the powers provided to the Board by statute, and to convey their separate intentions to stay within that framework.

The 2006 election

The Architects Registration Board published the result of the 2006 election by way of a News Release.  There is a link to summary of results, but no indication of the manner in which the votes were counted (See ERS comments above).

5 of the 7 elected members are committed to the reform of the Board.
