Present Your Research Poster at the Conference
NASW Ohio Chapter's Annual Conference has successfully hosted juried poster presentations for six years. We are calling for submissions for this year’s poster session on Thursday, November 17, 2016. Posters must be set by 9:00 AM at the Quest Center. Judging will be from 9:30-11:45 AM. The poster session is open to professionals, academics, and students. Recognition for best student poster presentations occur in the evening.
We ask for your help in making the 2016 Annual Conference a time when social work accomplishments are celebrated by submitting scholarly work for dissemination. Scholarship is broadly defined and includes work such as: original empirical research, secondary analyses, integrative literature reviews, field education learning experiences, and case study research projects. We are especially interested in seeing poster submissions that explore workforce issues such as safety, educational debt, salary, etc.

Writing Your Overnight Success Story: How to launch (or re-launch) a career in social work
At NASW Ohio Chapter, we help social workers navigate their careers on the frontline, in the corner office, and anywhere in between. This workshop is designed to facilitate career reflection. Participants will learn how to write a personal strategic plan, communicate qualifications on paper and in-person, and negotiate a higher salary.
We're hosting this opportunity to connect to colleagues (or future mentors) in specific practice areas. Join us November 17 at 5:00 PM for refreshments and networking for these fields: • Administration • Aging • Child Welfare • Medical • Mental Health • Private Practice • School Social Work • Social Justice
Attend a screening of the documentary, CAREgivers, at the NASW conference to learn more about vicarious trauma, burn-out, and earn two CEUs in the process. The documentary screening is free for conference attendees to add to their conference registration. Be sure to add the documentary screening to your registration. Get more information about the film>>
