DRAFT SOCIAL WORK COMPACT RELEASED!
The Council of State Governments (CSG) is partnering with the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) with support from the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and Clinical Social Work Association (CSWA) to support the mobility of licensed social workers through the development of a new interstate compact. This additional licensing pathway will facilitate multistate practice among member states and reduce the barriers to license portability.
An initial draft of the Social Work Compact has been completed. The draft is now available for review and public comment. To read the Social Work Compact draft model language: Social-Work-Licensure-Compact-Draft-7_11_22.pdf (csg.org)
Please submit comments to both of these links, so the compact committee and the chapter are able to relay thoughts and concerns to drafters.
