NASW-MN 2024 Spring Networking Events: Increasing our Bottom Line - 1 CEU

Join your NASW-MN Geographic Representative and social workers from your region for casual conversation and networking! Come out to meet your colleagues AND earn 1 CEU! 

Presented by Dr. Karen Goodenough, PhD, MSW, LGSW & Geographic Reps

While both our profession and the need for services continues to grow, social work salaries and licensure supports have not kept pace. This social work month and throughout 2024, NASW-MN will deepen our focus on legislation and initiatives that empower and support the social work profession and improve their bottom line. Join our Executive Director and our Board Rep in your region for interactive discussions around the state regarding ways to increase compensation in all areas of practice, including paid internships for students.
