Delegate Assembly Program Priority Goals

The elected delegates will have responsibility to establish the Association's 2024-2027 program priority goals. This is one of the most important jobs of a delegate at the Delegate Assembly. The program goals are initially drafted by the Program Committee and placed before the NASW membership for review and comment. At the culminating meeting of the Assembly, time will be allotted for a Q&A period about the goals, as well as the final floor debate and vote. The program priority goals are adopted under a single motion encompassing the entire set.

The NASW Board of Directors and its programming units, including the chapters, are bound by the priorities established through this process. These program priority goals provide direction, focus, and a context for utilization of the Association's resources of people, time, and money for the above identified period.
