It is with sadness that ASWB announces the passing earlier this month of Andrew Marks, Licensed Master Social Worker in Texas, and former executive director of the Texas State Board of Social Worker Examiners (2000–2005). In 2005 Andrew coordinated the board’s Sunset Commission review, culminating with passage of legislation for board continuance for 12 years. With ASWB during his tenure as executive director, Andrew served as chair of the Administrators Forum and was appointed member and later chair of the ASWB Program and Education Committee that planned ASWB’s annual education conferences in 2000–2005. In 2008 in support of ASWB’s examination program, Andrew was appointed to the Practice Analysis Task Force and the English as a Second Language Task Force. As senior clinical lecturer and BSW field director at Texas State University, Andrew helped prepare many students for social work careers. He also presented extensively across the United States on professional ethics and professional regulation.
