About ASWB

The Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) is the association of boards that regulate social work. Incorporated in 1979 as an organization devoted to consumer protection, ASWB membership now includes 49 states, the District of Columbia, the Virgin Islands, and Alberta, Canada.

ASWB 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. ASWB also works with professional social work organizations like NASW, the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), the Clinical Social Work Federation, the American Board of Examiners in Clinical Social Work, and the Federation of Associations of Regulatory Boards (FARB).

ASWB is also available to help individual social workers and social work students with questions they may have about licensing and the social work examinations.
