Annual Conference & Exhibition

Updated Conf

Each year nearly 1,500 social workers and related professionals come together for our annual meeting of the profession in Atlantic City for three days of learning, growth, networking and respite.  As one of the largest statewide social work conferences in the nation, this event is a hallmark of our chapter that offers participants an opportunity to learn from experts in the field, earn over 20 continuing education credits and complete specialty courses such as our clinical supervision program and leadership certification. 

Please read this important update about our 2020 Annual Conference (updated 3/13/2020):

In our Association’s response to the COVID-19 public health crisis, the health and well-being of our social work community and the thousands of people you serve is paramount. As such, we have made the decision to move our Annual Conference from an in-person to an online experience. The event will still be held April 26-28, 2020 in a virtual setting; you will be able to participate remotely via your computer to receive your CEU credits.
