To the Members of the Greater Washington Society of Clinical Social Work,

I want to wish each and every one a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

As 2023 begins full of hope and promise, so are we, your Board of Directors. As the Society moves forward on the anti-racism continuum, we are excited to let you know that we are interviewing a very promising and well-respected DEI Consultant to perform a Society needs assessment and assist us in creating a strategic plan for the Society. The consultant will also facilitate our first Society Town Hall Meeting, slated for March of this year. Additional details will be available once our consultant is hired.

I would encourage you to check all the opportunities available to members, be it a workshop of interest, a networking event or other opportunity to connect socially, or volunteering on one of our many committees — the sky’s the limit.

As always, the Society continues our mission to advance the field of social work, including:

  • Access to our vibrant listserv
  • Sponsoring continuing education events
  • Continuing our legislation and advocacy work
  • Coordinating with our lobbyists on legislative issues of concern to social work
  • Offering our mentorship program
  • Providing low-cost therapy for MSW students

I continue to welcome and encourage your feedback. What would make the Society more inviting and appealing to you? Of course, not every suggestion can be enacted, but I believe some very helpful information will emerge from your feedback. What would be helpful? What would be enjoyable?

I would like to foster a feeling of connection and the sense that this is a Society for everyone.

Thank You for your support of the Society!
