This year your chapter is giving back! 

We know how difficult this year has been for many of you, as such the NASW-NV chapter has decided to revamp our fall offering to allow us to give back to you, the NASW-NV member.  That's why we are excited to announce the fall event will be $10.00 for members of NASW-NV and the cost of membership to NASW-NV +$10.00 for nonmembers. 

This year’s Rethinking Ethics: 2020 NASW-Illinois Chapter Conference will be taking place on Friday, October 23rd, 2020 in a new virtual format*  Meet with other social work professionals from around the state to earn up to 6 CEUs (including ethics) toward your license renewal in our virtual platform. Engage with Nevada's vendor and social services in our interactive virtual exhibit hall and most importantly connect with your peers at a time we could all use a little more supportive interaction. Goto the Chapter Conference webpage to learn more and to register today.  Space is limited.


*Due to the uncertainty of in-person events in Nevada for the fall, this year's conference will utilize a virtual structure which allows registrants to attend live virtually.
