The state’s largest group of social workers, the National Association of Social Workers (N.A.S.W.), MS Chapter, is hosting its annual conference for the first time on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Over 400 social workers from hospitals, clinics, schools, universities, non-profit and government social service agencies, community centers, and numerous private practices will participate in the March 26th through 28th conference entitled “All People Matter” to be held at the IP Casino Resort Spa in Biloxi, MS.

To recognize all the ways social workers make a difference, and how they help turn public attention to complex social issues, that affect millions of lives across the nation, the N.A.S.W. MS annual conference will offer educational sessions by accomplished educators, researchers and practice leaders. Keynote speakers are Dr. Susan Buttross, Chief of Child Development and Behavioral Pediatrics, University of MS Medical Center, and Jim Aiken, A.C.S.W., Executive Director, of the Florida N.A.S.W. Chapter.

“I’m proud to belong to a profession that recognizes that all people matter,” says N.A.S.W. MS Chapter President Virginia Adolph, L.C.S.W., C-SSWS, of Gulfport. “The field of social work requires its members to put the ideals of citizenship into action every day.”
