Renewal Courtesy Calls

In order to better reach our members, who lead very busy lives, NASW has added renewal courtesy calls to the membership renewal process. These courtesy calls will be made around the time of your membership expiration date as a helpful reminder to renew your NASW membership so you continue your benefits uninterrupted. You will be able to renew your membership immediately over the phone, as well as renew your ACSW credential or Specialty Practice Sections membership. If you prefer to renew online instead, or via the renewal invoice mailed to you, please do. It is an exciting time to be an NASW member, and we are making every effort to make sure you are a part of it. For more information on the renewal courtesy calls, please call NASW Membership Services at (800) 742-4089 or (202) 408-8600 ext. 499. If you haven't visited the NASW Web site recently, go there today at www.socialworkers.org for the latest updates on the Social Work Reinvestment Act and the National Social Work Public Education Campaign and to register for free NASW WebEd online courses, which offer free CEUs.
