NASW - Vermont Chapter

Vermont is one of 55 chapters of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) (including Hawaii and an international chapter), the professional organization for all graduate (MSW) and undergraduate (BSW) social workers. Membership of the Vermont Chapter is just under 500 with representation across the spectrum of the field including, for example, medical, school, home health care, and clinical social work. With our main office in Montpelier directly across from the State House, we are well positioned to advocate for the needs and interests of our members. To do this, we have an elected Board of Directors, an Executive Director, Administrative Assistant, and several Committees and Task Forces, including Legislative, Education & Professional Development, Clinical Social Work, and Political Action for Candidate Election (PACE) Committees, as well as a Committee on Inquiry (committee descriptions and mission statements are available on request). Our primary goal is to serve and support our members in the pursuit of their profession.
