On July 10 - 12, 2015 21 Delegates from SSWAA's 29 Affiliate States met to discuss important topics related to the profession of School Social Work and to assist with the vision of SSWAA! This year's meeting was held at the Residence Inn in Alexandria, VA (across the river from Washington, DC) immediately followed by SSWAA's Summer Leadership & Legislative Institute. We were especially pleased to have Carmen Cooper-Davis observe as a representative from Alabama who is interested in developing a state association. See Reports. See photos.
As part of the Delegate Assembly, each state shares their "State Report" including information regarding their organization, membership, strengths, weaknesses and issues their association is facing. One of the most beneficial parts of the DA is being able to share ideas and strategies to address state association issues and concerns. SSWAA members can access copies of the 2016, 2015, 2014 as well as the 2013 State Reports.
