Each year ASWB hosts a two-day education conference offering continuing education for social work regulators. The conference content focuses on a central theme, most recently, Developing Tools for Social Work Mobility, which was held May 18-19, 2018, in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Committees and task forces, with the exception of the ASWB Nominating Committee and Board of Directors, are appointed by the ASWB President and approved by the ASWB Board of Directors. The term for most committees is one year, but to maintain a balance of experienced and new volunteers, some members may be reappointed to additional terms. Committee Interest Forms can be filled out online and submitted anytime. The president compiles a list of appointees and the list is subject to approval by the ASWB Board of Directors at their January meeting. Appointment notifications are sent in February. Anyone who serves on an ASWB member board or is staff to an ASWB member board is eligible for appointment.
