2017 Call for Chapter Leadership!


Election time is coming and the search for leaders is on!  The Chapter Committee on Nominations and Leadership Identification (C-CNLI) is now accepting nominations for candidates.  The C-CNLI is seeking enthusiastic individuals committed to the profession, seeking to enhance their leadership abilities, and willing to be a part of the NASW DC social work community, and to work while having fun networking with other social workers.


As a membership driven organization, NASW DC Metro offers opportunities to develop and expand leadership skills and to be involved in a variety of levels within the governance of the association.  If you are interested in a leadership role moving NASW DC Metro forward, please consider submitting your nomination for one of the positions below.  Candidate information forms can be found by clicking HERE.


Members are encouraged to run even if they haven’t been involved with our chapter or leadership in the past.  Any member in good standing is eligible to submit themselves or others (with their consent) for candidacy.  The theme for Social Work Month 2017 was Social Workers Stand Up!  Now is your time to run and shape your membership association!
