NASW California Chapter Elections

NASW is member driven through a democratically elected Board of
Directors. Candidates for the elected positions are nominated by the
democratically elected Committee on Nominations and Leadership
Identification (CNLI). Serving as an elected leader of NASW allows a social
worker to give back to the profession and includes valuable training,
experience, and networking opportunities.

Annual Elections

The chapter holds elections annually with about one third to one half of the
positions elected each year. The positions are three year terms with the
exception of the student directors, which is one year, and the Committee on
Nominations and leadership Identification (CNLI), which is two-year. There
are four Board of Directors meetings per year and there are additional meetings
locally and regionally for regional officers. The Chapter covers the cost of
travel, room, and board for these meetings.
