Be a Leader!
There are several ways that CSWE membership allows you to be a leader in social work education:
Presenter at the APM
Presentation at the CSWE Annual Program Meeting (APM) is an ideal way to interact with colleagues, provide a service for the profession, and acquire exposure as a leader in your particular area of interest. Individuals are not required to be current CSWE members to submit a proposal for the APM; however, all accepted presenters must be either current CSWE individual members or be eligible for a membership waiver.
CSWE Commissioner or Councilor
Each year CSWE seeks to identify new leadership for its commissions and councils. Please consider nominating those individuals who have an interest in this important volunteer work and leadership development or nominate yourself.
Nominations should include:
- the consent of the nominee
- current CV
- statement identifying the requested appointment area and describing special areas of expertise and/or interest that will benefit that area
If appointed, nominees must become a member of CSWE. Information about the six commissions, along with their corresponding councils, can be found on the Governance Web page. Appointments are made by the CSWE chair every July. Please note: to be considered for membership on the Commission on Accreditation, you must have at least 3 years experience as a site visitor.
The nomination receipt deadline for the next cycle of appointments is Monday, April 16, 2012. The materials may be sent by surface mail or electronically to the following addresses:
