Join one of our statewide committees:
“I find membership invaluable, not only for the camaraderie, networking and educational experiences offered, but also as I deeply value the social work profession. CSCSW validates and supports all that we do and represent. I am proud to be a member for over two decades.”
"Reconnecting with the Society has been one of the most valuable things I have done during my transition from agency work to private practice. The sense of community, the workshops offered and the support (on many levels) that I have received have been so helpful."
"I’m a new social worker who works at an agency. Joining CSCSW has given me something I would probably never have found elsewhere - access to many, many experienced professionals in the field. I encourage any social worker to join and take advantage of this and the slew of other benefits the Society has to offer."
