WHY SHOULD I VOLUNTEER TO RUN FOR ELECTION AS A CHAPTER BOARD MEMBER?
NASW-TN’s Board and Staff work in partnership to make a difference for social work professionals and our clients in Tennessee. We need the ideas and insights of the state’s best social work leaders to guide our efforts. You can celebrate victories, identify emerging issues and know you are providing leadership to promote the social work profession and sound social policies in Tennessee. Being a volunteer with NASW is also fun and a great way to expand your professional connections.

Our Branch leaders have the key responsibility of facilitating teams that organize local branch activities in their area. Strong Branch leadership is crucial to ensuring programming responds to local interests.

All Board and CNLI positions are two-year positions with the exception of the President-elect (to be elected in 2019), BSW and MSW Student Representatives. The student positions are elected for one year and student representatives will serve on the Board from July 1, 2018 until June 30, 2019.
