2014, 2016:  NYSSSWA board members Carrie Frost and Suzi Stoller worked to develop a resolution that was adopted by the NYS Senate and NYS State Assembly in March 2016. This resolution was sent to district Superintendents and Board of Education Presidents throughout the state and NYSSSWA is committed to sending notice of School Social Work Week every year to all school districts in New York State.
