The American Association of State Social Work Boards (AASSWB) is the association of state bodies that regulate social work. Incorporated in 1979 as an organization devoted to consumer protection, AASSWB membership now includes all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the Virgin Islands, and Alberta, Canada.
AASSWB develops and maintains the social work licensing examination used across the country, and is a central resource for information on the legal regulation of social work. Through the association, social work boards can share information and work together. AASSWB also works with professional social work organizations like NASW, the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), the Clinical Social Work Federation, and the American Board of Examiners in Clinical Social Work (ABECSW).
AASSWB is also available to help individual social workers and social work students with questions they may have over licensing and the social work examinations.
