NASW-Illinois Chapter Executive Director

Happy Social Work Month! This year’s national NASW theme is, “The Time is Right for Social Work.” https://www.socialworkers.org/News/Social-Work-Month. You may be asking, When isn’t the time right for social work? Please take some time this month to celebrate what we do as a profession as we help the state and country address vital issues such as economic inequality, systemic racism, the need for improved health and mental health care, and supporting individuals, families and communities navigate COVID-19.


Social Work Month in Illinois will include a range of events some of which include:

As Illinois begins easing the mask mandates up and down the state, the chapter will also begin its return to in-person events later in the coming months, following all necessary protocols. We have already put the call out for presenters our one day in-person conference later in the year: https://www.naswil.org/post/call-for-presenters-2022-nasw-illinois-chapter-conference


Stay tuned to announcements and posts on the NASW-IL Chapter website and social media.
