83rd Legislative Session Wrap Up


Most reports about this most recent legislative session have marveled at how congenial and how civil the legislators were toward each other, that the atmosphere was much more peaceful than the previous year. For NASW/Texas however, this session was brutal.

Licensing Tip


Have you moved? Make sure the Texas State Board of Social Worker Examiners has your new address! It’s the LAW!



“Though my service with the association, I have learned just how much NASW/Texas cares about not only its members, but the whole social work profession,” explained Houston Branch Chair Januari Leo, MSW.

“This is YOUR professional organization,” she continued. “NASW/Texas exists to advocate for YOU. From licensing issues to legislative policy, NASW/Texas has social workers’ best interests at heart. It’s also a great way to give back to the profession through volunteer service. Whether it’s sitting on the board, or completing an action alert, there is something for everyone.”
