Membership Benefits




As a social worker, you are a skilled professional who came to the profession to make a difference to those in need. To be the best in your profession requires access to cutting-edge ideas, the most up-to-date information and research, and the highest-quality resources available to social workers. Your NASW membership can provide you with all of these resources, to not only help you fulfill your personal career goals, but to ultimately help you make a difference in society at large. Some of our valuable NASW-PA membership benefits include:

DUAL MEMBERSHIP
When you join NASW, you become a member of NASW National and a member of your state chapter. This means you reap the benefits of both! Pennsylvania is also divided up into 9 divisions based on region. You will have the opportunity to get involved in your local division via networking and events. Connect with social workers in your area and across the nation! Along with the benefits listed below, you will have full access to all benefits offered through NASW National.
