The firm was contacted by an attorney in Canada. His client owns an architectural company in Canada. One of the architects was looking for license reciprocity in Nova Scotia to do work for a large project they were awarded recently. To comply with that province’s reciprocity rule, the client needed proof of his architect licensure from the states wherein he is licensed – MI and AZ. And he needed it yesterday! We got the call late Wednesday October 7th. Doug Folk got AZ to send the licensure information to Nova Scotia on Thursday the 8th, and Val Lawver had to work a little harder with MI, but got them to issue it late Friday – and it was Fed Ex’d Monday the 12th. The Nova Scotia License board met Tuesday the 13th in the morning – and everything was in – reciprocity approved!
