Meet our Board of Directors

Dr. Marlene SaundersExecutive Director Statement

With extreme pleasure and pride I have accepted the position of Executive Director. Since my appointment was confirmed, I have looked at the job as icing on the cake.  Being selected to fill a leadership position in one’s professional organization represents much, including respect of one’s peers.  In return I pledge to work with the Board of Directors and the membership to sustain and build on the activities and relationships that have maintained our chapter’s viability and capacity for continuous development.

 I look forward to talking and working with members to identify the chapter’s unique agenda and priorities. But doing so will require involvement on various levels---membership on or support to committees, responding to requests for ideas and suggestions, responding to requests for letters to legislators and others, supporting membership recruitment, etc.  As you see, everyone can contribute in some way, even if attending meetings regularly is not possible.

I officially begin on Tuesday, July 15th.  I will be in the office four days during the week. Please call or stop in.

ALL HANDS ON DECK!!


Dr. EtteThe Delaware Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW), extends congratulations to Dr. Ezekiel Ette his appointment to the Chairperson position for the Department of Social Work at Delaware State University.

STATE OF DELAWARE
BOARD OF CLINICAL SOCIAL WORK EXAMINERS
SUNSET REVIEW OF DELAWARE BOARD OF CLINICAL SOCIAL WORK EXAMINERS

The purpose of this email is to notify Delaware-licensed Clinical Social Workers that the Joint Sunset Committee has selected the Delaware Board of Clinical Social Work Examiners for review in 2015. The Board encourages you to participate in the review process.

What is a Joint Sunset Review?

The Joint Sunset Committee of the Delaware General Assembly consists of five legislators from the Delaware House of Representatives and five from the Senate. Their duty is to periodically review state agencies —which include professional licensing boards—to determine whether the agencies are correctly performing their mission under the law. Each year, the Joint Sunset Committee reviews one or more professional licensing boards for which the Division of Professional Regulation is responsible.

For more information about the Joint Sunset process, click Joint Sunset Committee Home Page. Or, go to http://www.delaware.gov/—scroll down and click General Assembly, then click Joint Committees, then Joint Sunset Committee.

In February and March, the Joint Sunset Committee holds public hearings on the agencies under review. Generally, it holds only one public hearing on a professional licensing board. The hearing on the Board of Clinical Social Work Examiners has not yet been scheduled. You can find the Committee’s meeting schedule at the link above.

Board Meetings

Starting with its September 15 meeting, the Board of Clinical Social Work Examiners will prepare for the Sunset review during its own regularly scheduled monthly meetings. Leading up to the Sunset Committee hearing, the Board will discuss initiatives to protect the public’s health, safety and welfare. The initiatives considered may include proposing changes to the licensing law and/or Rules and Regulations for Clinical Social Workers.

The Board encourages you to participate in these meetings. All Board meetings are open to anyone who wishes to attend. For Board’s meeting calendar, click Public Meeting Calendar. Or, go to http://www.dpr.delaware.gov/—click Social Workers, then Meetings, Agendas and Minutes.
