Calling All Presenters!

Michigan Association of School Social Workers

Join us this Fall!

The Michigan Association of School Social Workers (MASSW) is requesting proposals from social workers and other human services professionals to present a continuing education workshop at the 2018 Annual Conference. This year's conference takes place on November 6, 7, 8 & 9, 2018 in Kalamazoo, Michigan. Preference will be given to proposals that feature best practices, social work ethics, and pain management; however, all programs which are of interest to school social workers are appropriate.

Who Should Submit a Proposal?

You, your colleagues, your colleagues' colleagues -- any professional with a level of social work understanding who would like an opportunity to share his or her knowledge with school social workers from around the state of Michigan is a great candidate for this conference.

What Kind of Workshop Can I Give?

The possibilities are endless! Past workshops have featured lectures, case presentations, audio/visual components, group discussion, large group or small group activities and demonstrations. Presenters can choose between providing a 1.5 hour presentation or a 3 hour presentation, schedule permitting. Please indicate the length of program you prefer to provide when applying.

Presenter Benefits

In addition to the enjoyment of sharing knowledge with colleagues, presenters are able to choose between either donating their time to present in exchange for free registration for the remaining workshops or receiving a compensation fee of $100 for their presentation.
