Founded in 1955, the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) is the largest membership organization of professional social workers in the world, with more than 120,000 members. NASW works to enhance the professional growth and development of its members, to create and maintain professional standards, and to advance sound social policies.

The Mississippi Chapter of NASW was established in 1976. Over 700 members strong, our state chapter provides advocacy for Mississippi social workers and the clients we serve, plus continuing education programs, our annual conference every March, monthly social work news, and member support activities such as NASW Code of Ethics consultations. We encourage all Mississippi social workers to join NASW to support professional social work in our state--your membership supports all chapter activities as well as national advocacy and programs. Together we make a difference!
