NASW-MN Legislative Launch

Lunch N Learn Webinar

Wednesday, January 17 - 12-1 p.m. CST via Zoom

Presenter: Jenny Arneson, LGSW


Are you ready for the MN Legislative session to begin? Last year was a busy and productive session and we are looking forward to year two! Join NASW-MN as we review the basics and highlight the changes you can expect this season. Hosted by NASW-MN’s Legislative Consultant, Jenny Arneson, LGSW, you can expect:

  • An overview of the Social Policy Action Network’s (SPAN) work on the 2023 Legislative Agenda.
  • Context and other news from St. Paul
  • A closer look at NASW-MN priorities including:
    • Passing the social work licensure compact
    • Creating alternative licensing pathways and addressing a biased licensing exam
    • Removing the social work title exemption for counties so that only social workers with a degree or license may be called social workers.
    • Implementing legislation passed allowing school social workers with a clinical license to bill for mental health services

Instead of Lunch & Learn in January, we will Launch & Learn!

You will receive the access link the day before the webinar.
