65th Anniversary NASW Membership Directory
Working with our partner, Publishing Concepts Inc., NASW will print a membership directory album for our 65th Anniversary in October 2020. The first step is a comprehensive member record update. From October 2019 to March 2020, members will be invited by postcard and email to contact the directory team and update your member data.
Up-to-date member profiles help us provide relevant resources and support based on your social work practice interests, and help us represent you better as we advocate on your behalf at the national, state, and local levels.
If you choose to, you can be listed in the printed member directory, and you can submit a photo and/or a short essay. There’s no cost to be in the directory. If you choose to purchase the album, you can reserve your copy when you update your data. When NASW last published a commemorative directory in 2015, thousands of members submitted essays celebrating their social work history and experiences.
Frequently Asked Questions
I received an email/postcard/phone call from a company asking for my personal information. They said they were working on a directory for NASW. Is this a legitimate project, or is it a scam?
In celebration of our 65th Anniversary, NASW has partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce our new membership directory. PCI is a company located in Dallas, TX, and Virginia Beach, VA, that publishes directories for professional associations, educational institutions, fraternities, sororities and military organizations across the nation. This project allows NASW to receive important updates to our database so we know more about our members and how we can better serve you and future members.
How do I know my information will only be used for directory purposes?
NASW has a contractual agreement with PCI that states:
The names, addresses and information provided to PCI by NASW for the publication of the Directory will be held confidential by PCI, except to the extent that they are utilized in, or in the preparation of, the Directory and except as required by court order or law.
The Directory will be made available only to people with an NASW member record whose names we made available to our partner for this purpose. Upon completion of the project, PCI will return to NASW any and all electronic files that have been supplied to NASW or produced by PCI in connection with the production of the Directory.
I would like to verify and update my information. How may I do this?
If you have received a postcard or an email with a telephone number, you may call the number to speak with a dedicated representative for the NASW project. The representative will verify all the information we have on file for you and make any updates where needed.
If you have received an email with an embedded link, you may go to the online site to review your information. If you have questions, members may call 1-866-621-1951. Former members who wish to participate may call 1-866-554-1714.
Can anyone purchase a directory?

Can I choose some or all of my information not to be printed in the directory?
When you call to update your information, you can tell the representative what information you would prefer to have excluded. Members must opt-in to be printed in the directory.
