Call for Presentations

NASW-Missouri Chapter seeks quality presentations throughout the year, both for continuing education workshops and the annual conference.

Continuing Education Series Workshops

The workshops are held virtually and are 1.0 to 6.0 hours of credit for the attendees and can be done from the comfort of your office or home using a webinar forum.  As this is another form of a live workshop, you may utilize any method of presentation just as you would if you were standing in a meeting room. The chapter will pay a fee or you may donate your time. We will work with you to select a convenient date.
