What is NOMA? The National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA), established in 1971  to eradicate the effect of racism in our profession, which today remains committed to the diversification of the architecture and design industry and the increase of licensed Black and minority architects. With the largest membership to date, NOMA’s more than 3,600 members from 42 professional chapters and 114 student chapters, are a force that push boundaries and break barriers to create a more inclusive and equitable future for all. NOMA was founded by architects who saw the need to advocate for the architecture and design industry to be more inclusive, cultivate emerging talent that is often overlooked, and create more equitable communities. We continue this fight for the profession today.



This year will be packed with professional and social programming for our members, engagement opportunities for allied professionals, and experiences for our NOMAS students. Take the first step in demonstrating your support by becoming a 2024 annual sponsor of Bmore NOMA.
