2020 APM

What will you add to the conversations?

The Council on Social Work Education's (CSWE) Annual Program Meeting (APM) is the place where social work education professionals collaborate, learn, teach, and grow. This year’s APM is focused on "Leading Critical Conversations: Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion" and will feature hundreds of social work education presentations, daily keynote sessions, a virtual exhibit hall, and networking opportunities.

Take advantage of these benefits of a virtual meeting:

  • Connect to APM from your phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop -- from anywhere!
  • No travel expenses. No time away from the classroom.
  • Access hundreds of sessions after the event.

CSWE's 2020 APM Will Be Online

The safety and health of our members, event attendees, and staff is paramount to CSWE. Considering the current status of the COVID-19 pandemic and feedback from members, presenters, volunteers, and others regarding comfort levels with attending multiday on-site events, CSWE has made the decision to host a virtual APM from November 16–20.

We hope that hosting a virtual APM will allow students, faculty members, social workers, and affiliated professionals to attend the hundreds of presentations, lectures, and education sessions safely. A virtual meeting will also allow people from around the country to experience the APM’s signature networking events and opportunities.

Land Acknowledgement Statement 

While the 2020 APM will not take place in one location, CSWE acknowledges that we are on the ancestral lands of Indigenous Peoples from time immemorial. Indigenous Peoples once had and continue to have extended networks of relatives that include human and non-human life, as well as the seen and the unseen across diverse geopolitical and ecological spaces. CSWE recognizes and respects all Indigenous Peoples, their histories, their sovereign, political rights and their sacred ties to the land and waters.
