Selection Criteria

The National Association of Black Social Workers (NABSW) is a non-profit voluntary cultural and membership organization founded in May 1968 by a group of social workers and human service professionals to address the social welfare needs of Black people across the country.

Proposals will be evaluated on their relevance to the conference theme, area of focus, clarity, originality and the credentials of the presenter(s). If you presented at the last conference, your overall rating score for that presentation will also be taken into consideration.  Special attention will be given to those proposals that emphasize skill enhancement, focus on solutions, and that represent replicable program models.  Priority will be given to NABSW members.
