Membership


Social workers join NASW to advance in their careers, to connect with colleagues, and to protect their practice—all while advocating for the profession and important social issues. NASW members enjoy benefits and networking provided by both the NASW national office and their local chapter, for one annual fee.

Social work is complex work, and resources for clients can be 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.
