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.
