NASW-ND hosted in-person networking events in Bismarck and Grand Forks. Unfortunately, limited photos were taken but fortunately, the attendees were bright and conversation was lively. Thank you to all of the members and nonmembers in attendance. What a wonderful way to celebrate the profession and round out the conference.
NASW-ND Board of Directors Meeting
On Saturday, November 4, the NASW-ND Board of Directors hosted an in-person board meeting at Archives in Grand Forks. This was the first in-person meeting since COVID. About half of the board met in person while the other half attended virtually.
In addition to celebrating another successful conference, the board discussed NASW-ND priorities, the ASWB test, and the social work licensure compact.
The board voted to create a statement regarding NASW-ND's position on the ASWB test. This statement will be released to members in an upcoming email. Please keep your eyes out for this information.
