Eight individuals have been awarded the National Council of Architectural Registration Board’s (NCARB) highest honor, the President’s Medal for Distinguished Service. The honorees were announced by 2022-2023 President Bayliss Ward, NCARB, AIA, at the organization’s 2023 Annual Business Meeting in Tampa on June 20. President Ward commended each of this year’s recipients for their commitment to architectural regulation and NCARB’s mission to protect the public’s health, safety, and welfare.
Lewis Contractors’ Gary R. Ey, CDT, of Abingdon, Maryland, was recognized for his outstanding service to the Council, the Maryland Board of Architects, and the public member community. Ey was first appointed to the Maryland Board of Architects in 2003 and began volunteering for NCARB in 2016. Throughout his time with the organization, Ey has contributed his insight and expertise to NCARB’s Audit, Credentials, Education, and Experience committees, as well as the Interiors Task Force. As public director, Ey has led efforts to increase engagement from public members in NCARB service, encouraging opportunities for public members to connect and raising awareness of their important role on Member Boards. As a construction professional, Ey has also offered unique insight as both a collaborator and consumer of architectural services to NCARB’s Board of Directors.
We wish to congratulate Gary for his distinguished service with NCARB, and appreciate his being such a valued member of the Lewis team!
