The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) is the largest membership organization of professional social workers in the world, with 132,000 members. For the last 60 years, NASW has worked to enhance the professional growth and development of its members (social workers), to create and maintain professional standards, and to advance sound social policies.


This event is being held in admiration of the National Association of Social Workers 60 years of dedication to the social work profession. Our theme is “Social Work Paves the Way for Change”, which conveys what NASW and the social work profession have done over the past six decades to bring about positive changes in society and for individuals. We plan to honor esteemed social justice contributors and social workers as part of our Georgia Chapter anniversary celebration.


Georgia Social Workers play a pivotal role in developing the capacity of Georgia’s residents to address their own needs. They also seek to promote responsiveness of organizations, communities, and other social institutions to individuals’ needs and social problems. Fundamental to the NASW-Georgia Chapter’s mission is preparing social workers to be better advocates by making them conscious of the environmental forces that create, contribute to and address problems of living.


Come and Join Us as we Celebrate the Profession of Social Work

and Georgia Social Workers!


Special Awards for the event include:

Social Justice Lifetime Achievement Awards

Legislative Advocacy Award

Distinguished Social Work Practice Awards
