RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP WITH LACSW!
The Louisiana Association of Clinical Social Workers (LACSW) was founded in 1985 by clinical social workers to further the efforts and emphatically protect the legality of clinical social work vendorship. LACSW is a voluntary association whose mission is “to define, represent, promote, and protect clinical social work as a knowledge- based, client-centered profession which provides quality mental health services to the general public.” With a membership that reflects all nine regions of the state of Louisiana, our association has been delivering effective clinical social work advocacy for 30 years.
Our website lacsw.org is a key resource to all information pertaining to clinical social work, professional development and includes an electronic database of all of our members. As a member, you will be a part of this database and will be able to promote our profession through your own professional profile. Your dues are primarily used to support legislative advocacy through the only paid lobbyist focused on social work clinical issues in the state of Louisiana and are not tax deductible, however, those dues save you much more by protecting your right to independent practice.
We encourage you to consider taking an active role in our association. Please feel free to reach out and connect with other clinical social workers in our state to tell them all about LACSW. Your membership is invaluable to the association and it is the commitment of social workers like you that will continue the mission of LACSW!
