Illinois Chapter Approves By-laws Change

The Committee on Racial and Ethnic Diversity has been revived after being dormant for a number of years. The members wanted to broaden the focus of the Committee to include multiple dimensions of diversity. Some of the identified areas include race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, socio-political orientation, national affiliation, and belief systems. The members wanted to remain true to the mission of the National Committee on Racial and Ethnic Diversity; however, it also wanted to broaden the local Chapter’s focus. In accordance with the broadened focus, its members requested a change in the name of the Committee which required a by-laws revision. This revision was posted on the NASW Chapter website for membership comment during the month of August and approved by the Chapter Board of Directors unanimously on August 19, 2005 amending the by-laws in Article 9A, Section 5 from the Committee on Racial and Ethnic Diversity to the Committee on Diversity and Cultural Competence.
