Membership

Social workers join NASW to advance their careers, connect with colleagues, protect their practice, and advocate for their profession and important social issues. NASW members enjoy multiple benefits provided by both the NASW National office and their local chapter.

NASW members represent the very best of social work in academia, practice, research, and policy. Members agree to abide by the profession’s Code of Ethics and to enhance their skills through ongoing professional education.

Social work is complex work. By becoming a member, you give NASW a stronger voice to advocate for the profession and more influence with elected leaders, policy makers, and employers to make critical changes that support social workers and the communities they serve.
