Conference Call Meeting Minutes of April 30, 2002


PRESENT:                   Robert Payne, Chair; Virginia Dickman; Rhonda Murray; Suzanne Bushfield


BUREAU STAFF:            Budd Hetrick, Deputy Bureau Chief; Marilyn London, Secretary


Robert Payne called the meeting to order at 9:00 a.m. 


The Board discussed the new law change that will be in effect July 1, 2002 that will change the prefixes on the social work licenses.  The Bureau wanted clarification so this could be changed in the license system for the 2002 renewals.  The Board indicated the following changes: 

            Social Work  - SW changed to LSW

            Certified Social Work CSW changed to LMSW

            Certified Social Work Private Practice CSWP changed to LMSW-I

            Certified Social Work Private Practice/Clinical  CSWP-C changed to LCSW

            Add a new independent level for bachelor social work LSW-I



NASW wrote an article stating that new board member appointments must be members of NASW for their names to be sent to the Governors office.  The Board directed Budd Hetrick to write NASW a letter stating this is a false statement. 

The Board discussed adding a public member appointment to the Board.  This will be discussed at the August meeting. 


The Board moved to have a two-day meeting on August 5 and 6, 2002. 


The meeting adjourned at 9:30 a.m.
