Boston, MA E4H Environments for Health Architecture partner Jennifer Arbuckle, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP has been awarded National Council of Architectural Registration Board’s (NCARB) highest honor, the President’s Medal for Distinguished Service. Arbuckle was recognized by 2021-2022 president Alfred Vidaurri Jr., NCARB, NOMA, FAIA, at the organization’s 2022 Annual Business Meeting.

Arbuckle received this award for her service to the council, as well as her leadership of the Vermont Board of Architects and NCARB’s Region 1 and her role in helping launch NCARB’s Diversity Collaborative. Arbuckle was first appointed to the Vermont Board in 2009, serving as the board’s chair from 2014 to 2018. She was elected as the vice chair of Region 1 in 2018 and became the Region’s chair in 2020.

A dedicated volunteer, Arbuckle has been a valuable member of NCARB’s Education, Policy Advisory, and Regional Leadership committees. Additionally, she was instrumental in founding NCARB’s Diversity Collaborative, which seeks to explore opportunities to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in NCARB’s national leadership and volunteer community. Arbuckle served as the Diversity Collaborative’s first chair in 2020, after its initial creation as a grassroots effort from NCARB’s regional leadership. Arbuckle’s leadership on the Diversity Collaborative included working with architects from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds to analyze the composition of boards, chapters, and firms, and develop strategies that increase diversity and representation at all levels.

“This well-deserved recognition of Jennifer’s efforts to increase diversity, equity, and inclusion are valuable to both E4H and the communities we work with,” said E4H Managing Partner Jim Johnson AIA, LSSGB. “We’re excited to see the success of Jennifer’s ongoing leadership and outstanding service.” Arbuckle’s recognition is a demonstration of E4H’s commitment to championing diversity, sustainability, and wellness through an inclusive and equitable approach to design.
