Institutional membership is held by university faculties, departments, schools and modules of social work who are members of Universities Canada (www.univcan.ca) and are either accredited or have been granted pre-accreditation status by the CASWE-ACFTS Commission on Accreditation. Institutional members pay annual dues based on a flat fee, the number of full-time faculty, the number of BSW students and the number of MSW students.
Institutional members have three delegates to represent their school in the General Assembly: 1) the Dean or Director (or designate), 2) a Faculty Member, and 3) a Student. At the General Assembly, each institutional delegate’s vote cast on behalf of their institution counts as two. The Faculty Delegate also acts as the CASWE-ACFTS contact person and their name provided to the National Office by September 30th of each year.
