We plan to celebrate the profession by recognizing the nominees, having free appetizers, silent auctions, & door prizes.
Social Work is an incredibly rewarding profession, but Social Workers often don’t get the recognition they deserve. NASW Nebraska wants to change that! NASW’s 2014 theme & logo was selected “to help raise awareness about the American social work profession’s 116-year commitment to improving social conditions & quality of life opportunities for everyone. Social workers across the globe believe that all people have dignity & deserve respect.”
For additional information, nominations, & to donate silent auction items contact, Julie D. Eckland at (308) 631-8440 or email her firstname.lastname@example.org.
