Welcome to the Exhibitor Fair information page for potential and registered exhibitors and sponsors of the 2022 Annual Conference of the NASW Virginia and Metro DC Chapters March 24-26!

We are working hard to break our record-smashing 2021 attendance record of more than 420 social work professionals. Indeed, our conference has grown nearly 20% since 2019, thanks in part to the pandemic-forced transition to a safe, accessible virtual format. That versatile format resulted in approximately 20% of our attendees registering from metro DC, 10 states, and one country.  

In response, for 2022, the Virginia Chapter has partnered with the Metro DC Chapter to jointly host this year’s conference, creating even more opportunities for exhibitors and sponsors to reach social workers in the region.

Participants will be able to earn 22.5 live-virtual contact hours by fully attending the three-day meeting or up to 95 CEs by registering to attend live-virtual and 60-day access to recorded sessions and/or on-demand-only.

Exhibitors and sponsors will find ample ways to engage, inform, and build relationships with current and potential customers by reading this Exhibitor/Sponsor Prospectus Kit. [link]

A few new options worth a shoutout are as follows:

  1. Exhibitors can host a 15-minute mini-session on a relevant topic related to social work that showcases your expertise, products, or services. Bolstering your thought leadership in the eyes of attendees by providing valuable content and education is a powerful way to show that you know their needs well and are responding with support and innovations to assist them. The number of these mini-sessions is LIMITED, though, so contact Cecelia Meredith immediately at marketing.naswva@socialworkers.org for more information or to save your spot.
  2. Market your organization, products, or services well before and beyond the Annual Conference by becoming a year-round sponsor of NASW Virginia and/or Metro DC! You’ll have access to members 365 days a year through events, publications, the chapter and conference websites, advertisements, social media, and much more, so whenever social workers need something in your specialty, they will immediately think of you.

Don’t miss the chance to start boosting your organization or company TODAY by signing up as an exhibitor or sponsor to the 2022 Exhibitor Fair and chapter as soon as possible!
