Please Note: Continuing education hours for this licensure cycle must be obtained during the period of October 1, 2012 to September 30, 2014.  However, if you are licensed as a LMSW or LCSW in the state of Georgia, we recommend that you complete your continuing education hours and renew prior to the licensure renewal deadline of September 30, 2014 (this will give you time to submit the necessary information in case you are randomly selected for audit).  You are limited to a maximum of 10 online continuing education hours (this includes both approved and independent study).  All ethics hours obtained on or after January 10, 2014 must be received in person (online ethics continuing education hours that meet the Composite Board-Social Work approval guidelines and were completed prior to January 10, 2014 will be accepted for this licensure cycle renewal period only).

Survey - Invitation to Help Shape the Future of NASW

NASW has undertaken a major market research initiative through McKinley Advisors that has been sent to members, former members and non-members. The survey is sponsored by NASW and we encourage you to complete the survey as your perspective matters to NASW. If you have questions about this research study, please contact NASW Member Services at


Survey on Social Work Roles and Responsibilities in Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs)
NASW is compiling information on the activities of social workers in the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.  Specifically, this survey is collecting information about social work practice in accountable care organizations (ACOs).  Your feedback is very important in helping us advance social work participation in ACOs and other new models of care promoted by the Affordable Care Act.  Completing the survey should take approximately 15 minutes and your response will be confidential.

The survey has NASW IRB approval
