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

Members of the Board of Directors and the Nominating Committee are elected by the delegates from ASWB member boards at the Annual Meeting of the Delegate Assembly.

Joining a committee

Most committee members are appointed by the president and approved by the Board of Directors at its first meeting of the calendar year. Anyone who serves on an ASWB member board or is staff to an ASWB member board is eligible to serve on a committee.

Examination Committee

The Examination Committee is appointed from a select group of licensed social workers who write questions for the examinations.


Committee interest form

Please review committee information and time commitment before completing the interest form. The term is one year. It is important for committee members to complete the year-end committee service assessment to provide feedback and express interest in reappointment should committee work require additional terms. Committees are appointed in January each year. For consideration for the upcoming year, interest forms must be received by November 15.
