NSCSW’s Connections Committee (formerly the editorial committee) is welcoming applications for members interested in having a say in the topics and stories that get covered in the College’s professional magazine, as well as helping members connect to one another through our quarterly communities of practice events.
Connection magazine illuminates the essential role social workers play in our province. In its pages we share social work research, consider ethical challenges social workers may face in their practice, and showcase the many services our members provide that support Nova Scotians to lead healthier, happier lives. This publication plays a pivotal role in our advocacy efforts, and reaches social workers and provincial leaders across Nova Scotia.
Communities of practice are wonderful opportunities for like-minded practitioners, or professionals engaged in similar areas of practice, to be able to gather together and share ideas and best practices. They are an opportunity for networking, fellowship, resource sharing, and advocacy development. They can also help reduce burnout by reminding us that we are not alone, but rather part of a larger whole.
Take part in Connection
The connections committee is open to new members. We need your social work lens to guide the magazine content, and your networking skills to help connect social workers who have stories, resources and knowledge to share with our professional community.
Volunteering for committees is also an informal professional development activity; members can track these hours and apply them towards annual registration renewal.
Interested? Inquire today!
