ASWB leadership and operations

The Association of Social Work Boards is controlled by its delegate assembly, which elects members to the Board of Directors and amends the association's bylaws as necessary.

Delegate Assembly

The Association of Social Work Boards is controlled by its delegate assembly, a governing body comprising one delegate and one alternate from each member jurisdiction. Delegates meet during the ASWB Annual Meeting. Each member board gets one vote in the delegate assembly. The delegate assembly has specific powers reserved for it through the ASWB bylaws but also has latitude to shape association policy and programs.

Board of Directors

The ASWB Board of Directors is selected by the Delegate Assembly and oversees the ongoing business of the association.
