The North Carolina Chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects [NOMA] is a volunteer association comprised of architects, designers, and allied professionals involved in developing events and programming aimed at creating a more diverse and inclusive design industry. While there have been some successes garnered by minority architects + designers, a tremendous need still remains to ensure that the design of our communities and future design leaders more readily represent our multi-cultural society.  As a result, our ongoing goal is to champion diversity within the design professions by promoting excellence, community engagement, and the professional development of our members.
