Social workers join NASW to advance in their careers, connect with
colleagues, and protect their practice — all while advocating for the
profession and important social issues. At NASW, we’re focused on making
sure our members have the resources they need to grow and succeed in
their social work careers. We listen to our members’ needs and tailor
our offerings around them, so members enjoy valuable benefits,
resources, and networking at the national and chapter levels, all for one
While all social workers in the U.S. benefit from NASW's advocacy, our commitment to the profession and your support through membership dues, is what makes this work possible.
Social work is complex, and resources for the clients we serve are limited. When social workers unite by joining NASW, the social work profession has a larger voice and more influence with elected leaders, policy makers, and employers to make critical changes that support the profession and society.
