conference Policies

Emotional Support Animals: While the NASW/TX State Conference Planning Committee acknowledges an emotional support animal (ESA) is a companion animal that provides therapeutic benefit to an individual with a mental or psychiatric disability and while the committee is committed to helping provide a safe and comforting learning environment for all attendees, the Planning Committee and NASW/TX ask that ESAs be left in the comfort of their own homes and not brought to the conference. Service dogs and their handlers are always welcome. A service dog is defined by Title II and Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act as "any dog that is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability, including a physical, sensory, psychiatric, intellectual, or other mental disability." Thank  you for your compliance and understanding.
