Annual Conference
Share |


We are proceeding with preparations for an “IN-PERSON” mixed with ONLINE opportunities (AKA HYBRID format) conference in September, with the potential to move to an entire online conference if needed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.


As events unfold and time gets closer, this website will host the most up to date information as to any changes that need to be taken.
We are excited to hold this conference to educate, inform, and connect social workers from across the great Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and beyond.
