The National Association of Black Social Workers (NABSW) is a 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. The NABSW conference is open to NABSW members and potential members only.

Special Note: Individual membership must be paid to the national office by February 9, 2018 in order to receive the member registration rate for advance and on-site conference registration. If you are not a member of your chapter by this due date, you will pay the non-member registration rate.

The full conference registration fee includes: the conference tote bag and badge, admission to sessions/institutes, two continental breakfasts, a ticket for the annual luncheon and access to the Exhibit Hall and the Authors’ Pavilion. The conference badge must be visibly displayed at all times for admission.

Special Note: Please confirm that your local chapter has submitted your membership dues to the National Office, prior to registering in order to secure the “membership” discounted rate. Each attendee must complete a separate registration form.
