DC L&A Committee has expanded and now includes Gina Sangster, Deborah Newmark, Anthony Hain and Carolina Duarte.
At recent Board of Social Work meetings, we proposed that group supervision hours be counted for in the number of hours of supervision required for licensure. The Board was concerned about the size of such supervision groups and how these hours would be tracked and accounted for. The BOSW deferred consideration of the request because the Board Chair was not present. A final vote by the Board is due this month (February). DC Board meetings are held the last Monday of the month. The next DC Board meeting is Monday, is March 27 on Zoom at 10:00. Attendance by our members makes a definite impression on the Board.
Interstate Social Work Compact: Stakeholders have been meeting to write the language and standards for a Social Work Compact that would allow practice across State lines for social workers licensed in participating States. The Compact must be approved by the legislatures in at least seven States.
The DC L&A Committee is getting geared up to show our support and lobby DC City Council members to allow DC to participate in the Interstate Compact. We welcome the input and participation of people who are interested in making the Social Work Compact a reality.
