The NASW-Oklahoma Annual Conference is the must-attend event of the year for Oklahoma social workers and social service professionals. The conference brings together participants from across Oklahoma and nationwide for multiple days of learning and networking. With dynamic speakers, cutting-edge workshops, and engaging special presentations, attendees have the opportunity to earn many continuing education credits during the event with the goal to increase the professional growth and development of social workers across the state.

Each year, social work ethics is the most requested session. In response, we have interwoven multiple offerings dedicated to ethics in order to provide a more directed application of NASW's Code of Ethics. 

This year's event will be held virtually and over a wide time period in order to allow attendees additional flexibility throughout the day and the course of the week. We will be offering sessions during the morning and the afternoon on each Friday and Saturday of the conference. Additional ethics sessions will be provided during the conference in order to meet Oklahoma minimum requirements for licensed social workers. 

Register soon for the NASW-Oklahoma Virtual State Conference. Attendees contribute to the future of social work as each paid registration includes a free student registration.  

Your support by attending our events directly fund NASW-Oklahoma's student outreach, legislative advocacy, social work policy, and events and programs across Oklahoma.
