Chapter Coffee Hour

NASWCO Chapter 0 191

NASW-CO is starting a once-a-month virtual coffee hour with social workers across the state! The purpose is to build community, with intentional conversations aimed towards meaningful change. Our first meeting will focus on getting to know NASW-CO's Board President, NASW-CO staff members, and developing a list of topics and issues that social workers want to focus on during our future chats. This is meant to be a casual conversation and connection point for social workers across the state of Colorado. Please join us and bring your cafécito and your AMAZING self. No need to RSVP. This is open to all social workers (non-members welcome).

Practice Standards Committee

NASWCO Chapter 0 9702

The Practice Standards Committee will be meeting virtually. Please contact committee chairs, Kathy Aguirre, LCSW and Balin Anderson, LCSW for more information.

The purpose of the Committee on Practice Standards is to examine areas of all social work practice and develop guidelines of ethical conduct. This committee does not function in lieu of the specially appointed NASW Committee on Inquiry, but rather in addition to such a committee. The Committee on Practice Standards focuses on areas in which standards of practice have not been developed, as well as areas where questions may have come forth regarding unclear interpretations of existing standards. The committee may issue advisory opinions regarding the practice of social work.

The Practice Standards Committee meets monthly and we welcome all members. To confirm a meeting date check the Community Calendar or contact the Chapter office.

The Committee has a consultative process that handles questions from members. This process guides members in the ethical decision-making process, but does not provide supervision or give legal advice. The Committee will accept questions/issues that have an impact on social work practice. You are invited to attend a meeting in person or by phone to bring the question/issue for discussion. Please contact the office to request the issue be added to a meeting agenda.
