Welcome to #teamKSSWA!
Our association, Kansas School Social Work Association (KSSWA), is growing in membership and becoming more and more of an advocate for the school social work profession. We invite you to join our team! You can become a member (student, regular, retired) and come alongside the other fabulous school social workers that make up KSSWA.
KSSWA is the state association that supports Kansas school social workers by advocating at the local, state and national levels for their needs. Our Mental Health Awareness Day in Topeka that is a joint effort with school psychologists and school counselors is one example. You have the opportunity to meet with your Senator and Representatives and assist them in understanding YOUR profession and YOUR needs.
Whether you are a seasoned school social worker or just beginning your journey, your voice, ideas and energy is needed. The networking and professional development that is a part of KSSWA is so beneficial. KSSWA is hosting the 52nd Annual Midwest School Social Work Council Conference in Wichita. School Social Workers from ten states will be joining us in October. How exciting is that?!!
We currently have a few leadership positions open. Professional Development Chair (a new position) and Regional Representatives for our SW and SE regions. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information. Our board is passionate, dedicated and FUN. We are excited about this year and the impact KSSWA is going to have for our profession and the children, youth and families we serve.
I am beyond honored to represent you as the President of KSSWA.
