Budd Hetrick presented the finance report indicating a balance of $71,579.30.  This report will be posted for the Board members or anyone to review on the Bureau’s web site.



Rayola Jacobsen informed the Board that there is a new chair for the Senate Health and Welfare Committee. 



Roger Hales read a letter that the Board directed him to write in regards to Internet counseling.  This issue will be further discussed at a later date.



The Board discussed the clinical level ASWB examination that is required prior to being issued a clinical license.  Social Workers that already hold a clinical license were grand fathered and are not required to pass the exam in Idaho.  The Board takes the position to not approve already licensed clinical workers to take the clinical exam in order to meet the requirement for other state licensing boards.  Only candidates for licensure will be approved to take the examination. 

Rhonda Murray left the meeting at 10:15 and returned at 1:00 p.m.



The Board discussed the independent level license for LSW’s and LMSW’s.  This will be further discussed at the April 7, 2003 board meeting. 

Virginia Dickman moved to add a grandfather clause to the rules to read:

Those persons licensed prior to August 5, 2002 shall be exempt from the requirement to submit a plan of supervision.  However, such person shall submit documentation establishing that supervision was face-to-face and provided by a qualified and experienced professional working in the same area of practice;  that supervision occurred on a regular and on-going basis and consisted of a minimum of one hundred hours (100) hours; and that the Supervisor(s) held a social work license in good standing. 

Vicki Powers seconded and the motion carried.



Virginia Dickman moved to enter executive session to discuss possible litigation.  Vicki Powers seconded and the motion carried. 

Virginia Dickman moved to re-enter regular session.  Vicki Powers seconded and the motion carried.



The Board discussed the newsletter.  A draft copy will be sent to the board members for review and then posted to the web site when approved.



Congratulations to Virginia Dickman newly elected ASWB secretary.  The next meeting is in May 2003 at Buffalo, New York.
