March: March is Social Work Month!
We will have celebration events at each of our branches to celebrate who we are as social workers. This year’s national theme is “All People Matter”- that includes you! Join or renew this month and be entered into a raffle for a March is Social Work Month mug.
April: Volunteer Week
National Volunteer Week is April 6-12th this year. We’re curious- what volunteer efforts could you bring to NASW? At the NASW Annual Conference last year, many of you participated in making a ‘quilt’ of things you bring to the profession. This month is about putting that into action! We will highlight some of our members in their efforts on our website.
May: Graduation Month
Many new social workers are graduating and will be entering the profession this month. Bringing in qualified new social workers into the profession is vital to keeping it strong. Join or renew this month and be entered into a raffle for free lunch with an NASW staff or board member- what a way to start off your entry into the profession right!
In order to reach people all across Wisconsin, we host teleconferences every year to help members get continuing education hours. We think they’re awesome! Haven’t tried one yet? Join or renew this month and get a teleconference for free!
July: Fun in the Sun!
Look out for events in each branch to bring members together to enjoy the summer months. We’re over halfway through our membership drive! Join or renew this month and get entered into a raffle for admission to the annual conference at a reduced price.
August: Back to School
This month, we will focus on talking to social work students to get them connected to the profession earlier. If you’re not a student, would you like to share your experiences with new students? As a student, we hope to let you know that social work is not just a job, it’s a profession. Those who join or renew this month will be entered into a raffle for FREE participation at the Annual Conference- an event where you can get all of your CEHs for 2014 in one place. It’s our biggest event each year.
September: Almost there!
We’re one month away from our membership drive ending. Can we meet our goal of having 2015 members by 2015?? Can you help us out? Refer a friend to NASW. Join or renew this month and get entered into a raffle for a Social Work Month tote bag.
