2017 NASW-PA Conference Header


NASW-PA's 2017 Conference registration is now open! Sign up now and book your hotel room at the beautiful Kalahari Resort in Pocono Mountains, PA. We are excited to see you September 16th - 19th for our biggest event of the year! Click here to read through the full conference brochure.

This year's conference will offer you the opportunity to receive all 30 of the CEs you need to renew your license, including Act 31, ethics, and the newly required suicide prevention trainings. Our workshops are engaging and relevant to current social work practice. You'll have the chance to learn from our profession's leading minds, including NASW CEO Angelo McClain, Social Work Pioneer Mit Joyner, and world renowned speaker and peace activist, Ken E. Nwadike (the Free Hugs Guy).

When you're not in workshops, you can enjoy various social and networking events, amazing food, and passes to America's largest indoor water park! Our annual conference is one of the largest annual gatherings of professional social workers in Pennsylvania, averaging between 300 and 500 attendees.

We look forward to seeing you in September!


WHAT'S YOUR SUPER POWER?

The theme for this year's conference social event is "Social Work Super Heroes." The rationale behind the theme is that social workers do extraordinary things for their clients and communities, displaying super-power-like skills every day. There was even a TEDx Talk presented about social workers as super heroes! To generate some excitement and raise awareness about the social work profession, we are launching a #SocialWorkSuperPower campaign! To learn how you can get involved click here.
