School is almost out. It's that time of the year when everyone is busy "closing down" for the summer. Before you leave, sign in to the SSWAA website and add these items to your check out list:
Have you not gotten around to joining SSWAA yet? Did time get away from you and you forgot to Renew your SSWAA Membership?

Are you a Member and never signed in to SSWAA website yet?

Is Your Membership About to Expire?

Check For Unused Department Money!!
"Use it or lose it". Check to see if there are unused monies left that could be used for the National School Social Work Conference in Baltimore and/or for the Summer Leadership and Legislative Institute. NOW is the time to put in a request for those funds which may help you get to Baltimore and/or DC!!
Did You Register Yet for the Summer Leadership and Legislative Institute?
On July 12 - 14, 2015, SSWAA will hold its Summer Leadership and Legislative Institute. We will again be meeting at NEA. Participants are able to dialogue with other school social workers from across the country and hone their leadership skills. Additionally, opportunities are provided to hear the latest from leadership from some key national organizations who work in collaboration with SSWAA to support Specialized Instructional Support Personnel and the students, schools and families we serve. See Photo Summary of Past Activities as well as our 2013 Photo Gallery.
