EPAS 2020 Update
Hélène Albert and Kathy Hogarth, Co-Chairs of the Educational Policy Committee (EPC) of CASWE-ACFTS, have announced that the last round of membership consultation for EPAS2020 will take place during the month of January, 2020. They wish to thank everyone who offered thoughtful feedback on the Spring, 2019 draft during and after the spring conference.
The project lead, Carolyn Campbell, consolidated all the feedback and prepared a lengthy document for review by members of the Educational Policy Committee (EPC). Committee members met five times during September and October to consider the feedback and make further revisions, resulting in a new EPAS2020 draft. Translation and a final review will occur during November, resulting in a document ready for circulation to the membership in late December. This will be accompanied by Briefing Note # 4, which will summarize the changes made and clearly outline the process for the last few months.
This has been an exciting and intense five year process. As we enter into the last 6 months, we invite everyone to continue their engagement by responding to the January 2020 draft.
