There are so many ways to take advantage of the many benefits of your NASW-VA membership. Below are quick links and direct access to your exclusive member benefits.
Online CE Institute
The library of courses is comprised of social work focused courses developed by NASW producing chapters to meet quality and standards of NASW. All courses require you pass a post-test with a minimum passing grade and submit a course evaluation before a certificate of completion will be issued.
The workshop topics will be updated periodically, so please visit often to see the new workshop offerings and sign up for notification of new courses by completing the “My Content Updates” in “My Account”.
Virtual Book Club
The virtual book club will connect virtually through a LinkedIn group to discuss relevant books for social workers. The book club will give members the opportunity to:
- Earn 3 CEUs for each book that they read and pass a short quiz with a score of 80% or more (the group will read six books per year so
participants can earn up to 18 CEUs per year)
- Read interesting books related to social work
- Connect with other social workers to grow their professional network and learn from their peers
- Participate entirely online so the program can work with people's busy schedules
- Hold themselves accountable to reading by being part of a cohort
The program is $49 per year for NASW members and includes the online quizzes for CEU credit.
Members receive $20 off the full price of $69 with this code: DCVANASW2016BC
The book club will be managed by PBC Guru. PBC Guru manages professional book clubs for companies and will be moderating the LinkedIn group for the chapters to help make this program a great experience for all participants. If you'd like to learn more about PBC Guru you can visit their website at www.pbc.guru or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.

NASW-VA Qualified Supervisor Directory
The Qualified Supervisor Directory (formerly call the Find-a-Supervisor List) contains a list of licensed clinical social workers who wish to provide supervision to others. These individuals have successfully completed an NASW-VA approved 14-hour course in clinical supervision certification or completed a 14-hour supervision certification course offered by one of the seven providers approved by the Virginia Board of Social Work Regulation 18VAC140-20-105 (Section B.1.) NASW-VA is one of the seven,. Please Note: The Directory is not linked to the Virginia Board of Social Work and will not negate the supervisee’s requirement to register with the Board prior to starting supervision.
How to Use this Directory
The information in this directory is sorted by city/county. Each listing contains the contact information for each supervisor and a list of other languages spoken (you may enlarge your view by clicking on the document).
