Quick Reference Guide for Responding to a Subpoena

The recent Legal Issue of the Month published by NASW's legal defense fund deal with responding to subpoenas.  This article is primarily a quick reference guide, and a comprehensive review of subpoenas and related issues can be found in more detail in a number of NASW Press and Legal Defense Fund publications that are listed as resources at the end of the article.

Each year, the NASW-FL Board of Directors approves its overall advocacy agenda. This agenda is a broad perspective of our overall goals for the session and what we stand for as an association. Later, as bills are filed with the Florida Legislature, this agenda will be our guide for what bills to support or oppose. It also helps direct our action when the Governor’s office or other executive agencies create new policies that impact our profession or our clients.

Licensure Requirements

After holding dues steady for 10 years, NASW is increasing membership dues effective October 1, 2015.  New dues rates apply to those with membership expiration dates of 9/30/2015 and later.
To provide more flexibility in paying dues, NASW is offering two payment options:

  1. prepay at the current rate for up to two years by September 30, 2015
  2. prepay your full dues in two or three installments by your membership expiration date.

Both payment options are available by phone or by mail (but not online).  To prepay by phone at the current dues rates, before the increase on October 1, call NASW Member Services at 1-800-742-4089, M-F 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
