Automatic Revocation of Membership

Automatic revocation of membership will be implemented based on action taken by a state licensing board to revoke a member’s license or as a result of a felony conviction of a crime in a publicly reported forum. The action taken will be as follows:

  • If a social work licensure board action requires revocation of the member’s license: NASW membership will be revoked.
  • If a member is convicted of a felony: NASW membership will be revoked.
  • Criminalization of Psychotherapist Sexual Misconduct (NASW LDF Legal Issue of the Month, May 2013)

This will not require a review by the National Ethics Committee or NASW Board of Directors’ Executive Committee. Membership Services will facilitate the revocation of membership.
