Due to the significant impact the compact will have on Illinois social workers, we are requesting all Illinois social workers to review the draft model language and to submit your feedback on the document to the chapter by Monday, August 15, 2022. We will be reviewing and collating all feedback on the compact for review by the NASW-Illinois Chapter Board of Directors as well as for the larger national NASW listening session.

More About the Interstate Licensure Compact
The Council of State Governments (CSG) is partnering with the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) with support from the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and Clinical Social Work Association (CSWA) to support the mobility of licensed social workers through the development of a new interstate compact. This additional licensing pathway will facilitate multistate practice among member states and reduce the barriers to license portability.
