The California Architects Board has disciplined Scott A. Spencer of La Jolla for practicing without a license. His original license expired in 1987. But in 2000 he identified himself as a licensed architect, and in 2004 paid a $2,500 penalty. In 2008, he prepared plans for a residence in Del Mar and identified himself as an architect at a meeting of the Torrey Pines Community Planning Group. On December 12 of last year he got five years of probation and was told to reimburse the board $3,350 for its investigation.

On Dec. 7 of last year, a new license was issued, then revoked, and the revocation stayed. Then he got hit with the five-year probation. Best, Don Bauder

Hello, This is Scott Spencer writing to offer a response to the above Bauder Article, and comments. Its is all true, but with explanations. I had an original Calif. Architectural license that expired for failure to re-new it. Years ago I moved locations in my Business and home both, and was never aware that it had expired. The Board could not effectively contact me. MY MISTAKE. I paid the fines, and applied for re-licensure. Re-Licensure is a rigourous process. Re-take exams, undergo scrutiny by the enforcement board, admit guilt and wrongdoing, submit to some administrative fines, etc. It took three solid years on intense work. BUT......in the end I have my License back and in good standing with the Board. In this process I held a cordial and professional relationship with the Licensing Board in Sacramento, as well as their enforcement offices. I must say that they helped me greatly, and I appreciate that. I am now an expert on what not to do, and how to resolve it.
