NASW Virtual Conference

NASW is hosting the 2017 NASW Virtual Conference on June 14-15, 2017.

The focus will be on Aging-related issues with the theme of “Aging Through the Social Work Lens.”

While we have hosted live-stream events in the past, including portions of last year’s National Conference, this is the first time where the program has been constructed solely for a virtual audience. The event will include components typically associated with a site-based conference, including plenary sessions, breakout sessions, networking (through a chat feature), and an exhibit hall. Participants will be able to earn up to 8 CEUs, including essential Ethics Credits.

Here is a link to the promotional toolkit to help support your efforts:
