 The 23rd National School Social Work Conference, has been re-scheduled for June 27 – 30, 2020 in Baltimore, MD at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel.    Read more.   SSWAA is working with presenters to adjust and update the conference program as well as provide a virtual option for those unable or uncomfortable attending in person. As with SSWAA, your New York State School Social Workers’ Association (NYSSSWA) registration for New York approved CEUs will remain in place for the rescheduled summer date.

Cancellation Policy: Please know that SSWAA and NYSSSWA realize that these dates may not be ideal for everyone.  After you have time to consider, please notify us if you know that you will be unable to participate in person or virtually this summer and we will refund your CEU fee portion.

For those of you who took advantage of also including NYSSSWA membership at a significant discount, we greatly appreciate your support of NYSSSWA– the only New York State professional association dedicated solely to the visibility and viability of School Social Workers and the students and families that we serve.  If you are unable to participate in person or virtually this summer for the SSWAA Conference, we will still honor your $30 membership (normally $85) for one year and refund the $60 CEU portion only.

New York CEUs:

NYSSSWA will continue to partner with the SSWAA to provide New York approved CEUs including adding virtual attendance.    NYSSSWA registration, however, is currently closed until we know what the new schedule of workshops will be.

CEU Registration Rates:

As a result, a lot of time is required to vet and process CEUs. Due to these administrative costs, NYSSSWA will be charging the following for the provision of New York CEUs:

NYSSSWA Members: $30

NYSSSWA Non-Members:  

  • NYSSSWA Membership plus CEU fee: $90   (We hope you will take advantage of this savings and become a NYSSSWA Member–normally $85!)
