ASWB announces with sadness the passing of Norm Cohen, LCSW, a former executive secretary of the New York State Board for Social Work, on December 21, 2015. David Hamilton, current executive secretary, shared the news with ASWB, writing: “I had the pleasure of working with Norm when I was at NASW New York State and as a colleague in the Office of the Professions. I was honored to be chosen as his successor for social work when he retired in 2003. Norm touched many lives in his career as a musician, a practicing clinical social worker and Board administrator.”
The obituary was carried in the Albany Times Union and notes a memorial service will be held later in January.
