Our monthly membership meetings are an opportunity for NYS members to engage with Chapter staff and Leadership directly, learn about current and upcoming NYS initiatives, and provide feedback on NYS programming and services. These meeting will include updates on membership benefits and services, guests from our Chapter Leadership who are spearheading our initiatives, and transparent conversations about how we do the work we do to serve our membership.⁠

The NYS Chapter knows that our members provide our greatest source for ideas, guidance, and strength. NASW is your organization, it belongs to you. Please help us to create a NYS Chapter that is of most value to NYS social workers by participating in this monthly opportunity to engage, organize, and advocate.⁠

2021 Meeting Schedule – 12pm on the last Thursday of the month!
