If approval is pending at the time of ad copy placement, the advertiser may list a course as pending approval but must clearly provide a resource for social workers to check whether or not the course has been approved before registering. NASW-Michigan reserves the right to deny advertisers if the above requirements are not met to the Association’s satisfaction. In addition, advertisers may not use the NASW-Michigan name or logo without written permission from the Association.
