    Legislative Committee

    The Legislative Committee is a vehicle for social workers and students to learn about and engage with the political process on behalf of our clients, our profession, and our values and ethics. The committee purpose and responsibilities as outlined by NASW: 

    • To promote NASW legislative policies consistent with the goals of the social work profession and those served by the profession 
    • To recommend a legislative agenda to the NASW-VT Board of Directors 
    • To recommend programming for Social Work Legislative Day
    • To promote education, leadership, and advocacy among members of the social work profession.

    During the legislative session, we actively work with the legislative consultants and executive director in responding to legislation, and support chapter member’s advocacy efforts in contacting legislators and testifying for relevant bills. Please join us as we take action to make a difference in the profound impact of policy on our clients and our communities. 

    This committee meets the third Thursday of the month at noon.
