Approved motion related to NASW Assurance Services Inc.

NASW board of directors approved the election of Diana Stroud to the NASW Assurance Services Inc. board of directors. Stroud will serve a three- year term, which will end on June 30, 2015.


Accepted revision to bylaws Article XIII, to reflect the complex business and organizational responsibilities of the leading staff decision maker of the association.

Previous language specified the leading staff decision maker as the executive director and the new language specifies the position as chief executive officer.

Approve the proposed changes to the NASW Election Standards and Procedures for National Leadership as amended.

The Election Standards were last revised in 2000. The purposes of the proposed revisions are: to update the Election Standards to ensure that it reflects the electronic process of candidate submissions and voting; to ensure the manual reflects current procedures and practices of NCNLI; and to correct typographical and grammatical errors and to clarify sections of the manual that have been unclear or conflicting.
