Get Involved

ASWB relies on committed volunteers for its most crucial work. Volunteers serve on committees, in positions of elected leadership, and as subject matter experts.

The success of ASWB greatly depends on the volunteers who serve on our committees and task forces. In general, committee members are members or staff of social work regulatory boards and donate their time to ASWB in addition to their board commitments.

Elected leadership

Each year at the ASWB Annual Meeting of the delegate assembly, delegates vote for individuals to serve on ASWB’s Board of Directors and Nominating Committee.

Member event and information portal

ASWB is pleased to offer an online portal for our member boards, their staff, and volunteers.

Through this system, members can register for ASWB meetings and trainings, review any existing registrations, and update  contact information with ASWB.

Serving as a delegate

Delegates are individual representatives of ASWB member boards. Each ASWB member jurisdiction is encouraged to appoint one voting delegate to attend the Annual Meeting of the Delegate Assembly and an alternate delegate to serve in the delegate’s place if the delegate unexpectedly cannot vote. Multiple members from a jurisdiction may attend the annual meeting, but only one individual will be fully funded as the designated delegate.
