Get Involved

Are you ready to strengthen your connection to the profession of social work? Are you eager to connect with other members and social workers throughout the state? Do you want to develop your leadership experience while learning new skills? 

Great! We’re looking for individuals who are passionate and share a desire to contribute to our Chapter in a meaningful way. The NASW-DE Chapter volunteer leadership is comprised of volunteers just like yourself, who are passionate about our field, our collective purpose, and have a desire to contribute to the dialogue and lend their talents and voices to the betterment of our Chapter.

Ways you can volunteer with us

We’re a small, lean-mean team and we are always looking for office volunteers who can help us look at data, do research, think through new marketing materials, and attend outreach events. Have a specialty you think we could benefit from? Let’s talk. We’d love to help you find a space to share your talents.

NASW-DE has several regions across the state of Delaware to provide members regionally based networking and educational opportunities. Each unit has a representative whom helps plan and coordinate events that bring value to our members. Regions are a crucial way our Chapter engages and connects members!

Our 2019-2020 committees are being formed right now. These are one-year appointments and committees typically meet by phone or in person on a monthly basis. Committees are a great way to learn more about the internal workings of our professional organization and help shape programs and policies. You’ll be a leader in our organization. Sounds great, right?

Lead and serve our organization at the highest level! Board positions are elected by member vote and serve one to two-year appointments. Our Board meets quarterly and is active in conversations, dialogue, and Chapter governance in-between meetings. We know you have great ideas and passion—we want you to be prepared to share that with us throughout your term!

Am I qualified to volunteer?

You should be a member, students and regular members are eligible to volunteer and can practice in ANY setting.

We know that social workers are in every aspect of our community and we hope our leadership is as diverse as our membership.

You do need to be a member of NASW-DE (of course!) and we certainly encourage you to be active in the Chapter in some capacity.
