Our thoughts for the Thanksgiving holiday…

This year has been very busy for the ABCSW – from the change of traditional management to association management, a new name, on-boarding new board members, a change in leadership, an updated strategic plan, the creation of new committees and a new website – all in the midst of a pandemic, election year and social justice movements. The ongoing work to support Clinical Social Work continues to make us proud to be part of this amazing FAMILY.

You are all what makes our profession, this nation and our organization AMAZING. We are truly grateful this year for each of you – thank you for everything you do!

Over this long holiday weekend unlike any in our lifetime, please continue to maintain social distance, wear a mask and look for ways to stay connected with those you care about.

Have a safe, healthy and happy Thanksgiving!
