Purpose/Function The Board is responsible for granting licenses and regulating the practice of architecture in the State of Louisiana. The mission of the Board is to safeguard life, health, and property and to promote public welfare through regulation of the practice of architecture. In doing this, the Board has established and identified standards and programs for the licensure and credentialing of architects and their firms. It is the board’s objective to ensure that the practice of architecture is reserved for those individuals and firms who have the proper qualifications and have been registered by this board.
Budget Message LSBAE funding is 100% self-generated. We rely on fees from applicants and renewal fees from architects and architectural firms.

Notes 1/10/24 - On the Means of Financing Detail of Self-Generated Revenue, under the fines row, zero was noted because fines collected by the LSBAE are forwarded to the State Treasury as per statute, so they are not revenue. The other row is costs associated with enforcement actions which DO stay with the board as financing.

11/29/23 - In FY23, one board member resigned, and another was appointed. Thus, there are eight board members listed.
