This year’s theme is “Strengthening Connections,” which jives nicely with NASW’s 2022 Social Work Month theme of “The Time is Right for Social Work.” Guided by attendee survey suggestions, emerging topics in social work, the COVID-19 pandemic, America’s racial reckoning, and feedback from membership surveys, the NASW Virginia and Metro DC Conference Committee has put together an exciting and diverse lineup with professional development for every social work specialty—all threaded together with these powerful themes.

But we didn’t forget everyone’s favorite traditions:

  • The Lunch and Learn featured Dr. Liz Lasky, who often uses humor to help you “Embody a Coaching Mindset.”
  • Our tradition of exciting keynoters continues with some engaging you directly in theatrical expression during their presentations about racial equity and justice.
  • Watch on demand CE-earning thought leader mini-sessions of 15 minutes each, a well as our Annual Awards Ceremony.
  • Visit the informative Exhibitor Fair! Open 24/7 until May 31.
  • Retirees and students, we would LOVE to have you watch on-demand content, and we’re offering you special discounts.
What your peers say about our 2020 and 2021 conferences….

“This was my first conference, and I was truly impressed with the quality of the conference being done remotely…. Thank you so much for the great work!

“I loved the virtual experience. I was able to focus more and had less distractions. I was able to enjoy each presentation without people walking around or coming in late or being in crowded rooms.”

“This was the best NASW conference I have attended, and I have attended several. I was able to receive more vital information and could engage with the speaker better.”

“In all honesty, this year’s conference was one of the best I’ve experienced in nearly 40 years of being a clinician social worker.The quality of the presenters and range of content. You and your committee knocked it out of the park.”

“Excellent opportunity! I felt much SAFER at home. Just as educational. In fact, due to being at home, I felt more attentive to the presenters! GREAT JOB, everyone!”

“It was lovely and just wonderful…. This pandemic has been stressful on a personal and professional level, so being able to complete my CEUs as planned went a long way toward decreasing that stress.”

Special thanks to our year-round partners and conference sponsors. Additionally, we recognize our DC exhibitors.
