Shared Interest Groups

The NASW Illinois Chapter Shared Interest Groups (SIGs) are formal organizational units that are created and maintained by members with similar social work–related interests. Through the SIGs, members can pursue narrower, substantive subjects while NASW Illinois focuses on the broader interests of the larger membership base.

Private Practice SIG

The Private Practice SIG provides a common place for private practitioners to share knowledge and resources pertaining to their work. SIG interactions occur primarily through an online Google Group discussion board. For NASW Illinois Chapter members looking to participate, please contact the office

Student Network SIG

The Student Network SIG provides support and networking opportunities to Illinois social work students. If you would like to join the Student SIG please contact a representative below.

Please note that the network is only active during the school year.

Mediator SIG

The Mediator SIG promotes social workers as mediators and provides networking and education opportunities. 

Older Adults SIG

The Older Adults SIG works to establish social work as a primary discipline in older adult services in Illinois and to attract committed social workers who are qualified and trained in the field of older adults.

Retired Social Worker SIG

The Retired Social Worker SIG brings retired social workers (RSWs) back to the field of professional social work and provides networking opportunities, continuing education events, and more.
