CSWA has been involved in the development of a Compact which would allow clinical social workers to practice in all states that join the Compact without having to become licensed in individual states. For the past 8 months, Laura Groshong, CSWA Director of Policy and Practice, and Kendra Roberson, CSWA Board President, have attended the Social Work Compact Technical Advisory Committee meetings monthly, sponsored by the Department of Defense and Council of State Governments.

A document for the Compact has been created which is now available for review by the public, including CSWA members. All CSWA members are encouraged to attend one of two webinars to learn more detailed information on the Compact. Keith Buckhout and Matt Shafer of the Council of State Governments will be available to explain the process and answer your questions. 

Among the issues that will be addressed are:

  • What is an interstate compact?
  • How do states use interstate compacts?
  • How do states join a compact?
  • How many states are required for a compact to be in effect?
  • What are the benefits of a compact?
  • How do compacts preserve state sovereignty?
  • Where do states obtain legal authority to enter compacts?
  • How are compacts administered and enforced?
  • What are the steps in the compact development process?
  • How long can it take to implement a compact?
  • How are compacts funded?
