A message regarding the 2017 NASW/Texas State Conference from NASW/Texas President D. Lynn Jackson, PhD, LCSW, ACSW: 

 

We are heading back to Galveston!...the most popular destination for our NASW/Texas State Conference. Plan to join us October 5–7, 2017 at the Galveston Island Convention Center and near-by host hotels, the Hilton Galveston Island Resort and The San Luis Resort.

With the conference theme, Social Workers Stand Up!, we are pleased to offer a number of advocacy-related sessions to learn more about how we can Stand Up! in our own communities, and together, to facilitate change for our clients and profession. We also have our first-ever film screening of the movie “Almost Sunrise” which won the 2017 NASW National Media Award for Best Documentary. This additional activity allows everyone the opportunity to earn up to 20.5 CEUs, an increase of 1.5 CEUs over last year.

Your Conference Committee has been hard at work and has 25 sessions of Ethics courses planned, in addition to practice areas that include content related to LGBT, children and families, Veterans, and sessions by our Ethics Committee and the Texas Field Educators Consortium. We will also have the first of four sessions of the NASW Student Leadership Academy (the last three to be done as webinars.)

You will also be the first conference attendees to try our new Conference app that will be rolled out in September. The app will enable attendees to have all of the schedule and activity information at their fingertips, converse with other attendees on a proprietary event newsfeed, and receive real-time updates and reminders.

I’m afraid there will be no Dallas Cheerleaders (inside joke from last year) at this conference but I do hope to meet each and every one of you and hear what we can do as your professional social work organization. We will have fun, there will be lots of kisses (Hershey’s) and time to meet up with “old” friends and make new ones.

 

I hope you will join me in Galveston! Get all of the details and register before August 18 to save up to $30 with the Early Bird Discount.
