2010 Social Work Congress
The 2010 Social Work Congress was held April 22 and 23, 2010, in Washington, DC. Approximately 400 social work leaders attended, including 30 emerging leaders under the age of 30.
The purpose of the 2010 Social Work Congress was to examine the internal challenges facing the social work profession, with a special focus on transferring leadership from established leaders to emerging leaders.
A parallel Student Congress was convened online with 400 social work students across the country. These students watched components of the event online, ranked the adopted imperatives, and created imperatives of their own.
