Annual Meeting of Members

The NASW 2015 Annual Meeting of Members will be held on June 26, beginning at 10:30 a.m., at 750 First Street, NE, Suite 800, Washington, D.C.

All eligible members (whose membership is current) are invited to attend the meeting. The results of the 2015 election of members of the National Board and National Committee on Nominations and Leadership Identification will be officially announced.

Please send all related inquiries to e-mail.


Membership Dues Increase

On May 1, the national board of directors approved a dues increase of 18 percent effective October 2015.  The regular member dues rate will increase from $190 to $225.  Other categories will increase proportionally.

In response to the financial concerns of our members, NASW has held dues rates steady for 10 years. During this time, the cumulative cost of living (COLA) has increased by approximately 22 percent.

NASW must increase dues in order to offer valuable products, services and experiences for members and to effectively represent social workers at the local and national levels.

We invite you to share your views and ideas through NASW CEO or Membership.

NASW is revising its Standards and Indicators for Cultural Competence in Social Work Practice, and we need your help in ensuring that the standards are relevant to current practice.

The comment period closes June 22.
