The South Carolina Association of School Social Workers (SCASSW) invites you to be a member of our association for the school year of 2022-2023. SCASSW provides training for School Social Workers and the opportunity to connect with other school social workers in the state. Membership in SCASSW enhances our ability to ensure that this opportunity will remain available to support and promote School Social Work in South Carolina.
Our By-laws state that membership runs from August 1 – July 31 (basically a school calendar year). As a benefit of being a member, dues must be paid by December 31 to receive the reduced registration fee for the spring conference. You have until December 31 to pay your dues in order to receive this benefit.
Options for paying for your membership includes paying your registration for the Fall Conference ($200 includes the registration and membership) or by sending a check ($30) to our treasurer, Elaine Swain, 3524 Abingdon Rd, Columbia, SC 29203, with a completed membership form that is available at our website www.scassw.com.
Since some districts have a policy to not cover membership dues to professional organizations; we encourage you to join even if you have to personally pay for the membership dues. We considered the dues to be very affordable when compared to other professional organizations. We want to continue to offer affordable school social work training to you at a reduced rate to ensure that you have the opportunity to meet licensure requirements.
