9:00 am – 4:00 pm Administrators Forum
Twice a year, ASWB hosts the Administrators Forum, a daylong meeting for administrators, registrars, and staff members of ASWB member jurisdictions. The agenda varies with each meeting, but the forum provides a great opportunity for social work regulatory staff to learn from their colleagues. Download the agenda.
9:00 am – 4:00 pm Board Member Exchange
This daylong meeting is for members of social work regulatory boards, rather than staff. This facilitated meeting gives social work regulators a chance to discuss common concerns in social work regulation and learn from the expertise of other social work regulators. Download the agenda.
