"I just wanted to thank you and all the presenters. For a first virtual conference, you all are doing an amazing job. You are fielding questions, offering a variety of sessions, allowing for conversation, and improving the field of social work by providing information and resources."

"I thought all of the sessions were great!  I even spent my lunch using what I learned in the first session about the virtual office and the google site to develop my own SEL site for our district. Thank you for very applicable information so far at this conference!"



"Appreciate the great efforts of SSWAA to offer a timely and pertinent virtual conference! School social workers are striving to learn and offer best practices during these most challenging times. The  variety of topics and presenters, avenues to access content, and connection with nationwide colleagues was awesome."



"I took all the sessions this summer.  I'd like to share since then I have participated in a few more virtual conferences and trainings.  SSWAA by far was the most professional, organized and easy to navigate.  Kudos to the people who put the SSWAA virtual conference together.  I am now a member of SSWAA due to the experience I had with the conference."
