NASW History

Founded in 1955 the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) is the largest membership organization of professional social workers in the world, currently boasting a membership of approximately 150,000 in 56 state, territorial, and international chapters.

NASW works nationally, and through chapters in every state of the country, to enhance the professional growth and development of its members, to create and maintain professional standards, and to advance sound social policies.

NASW’s primary functions include promoting the professional development of its members, establishing and maintaining professional standards of practice, advancing sound social policies, and providing services that protect its members and enhance their professional status.

The Association has developed and adopted the NASW Code of Ethics and other generalized and specialized practice standards. Certification and quality assurance are promoted through the Academy of Certified Social Workers (ACSW), the NASW Register of Clinical Social Workers, and the Diplomat in Clinical Social Work (DCSW). Among NASW’s political action programs are Political Action for Candidate Election (PACE) and Educational Legislative Action Network (ELAN). The Association also sponsors, through its 56 chapters in the U.S. and abroad, professional conferences and continuing education programs, and produces journals—such as the flagship Social Work—books and major reference works for the profession.

NASW-CO is the state chapter of NASW, and currently maintains a membership base of about 2,300 professionally trained social workers. The Chapter has many active committees that involve members throughout the state to better serve the social work community. These committees, along with the eight regions, work on professional, social policy, and legislative issues, promote continuing professional education, and provide a source of networking for members.
