NAPSW REGIONS AND LIAISONS

NAPSW is divided into ten regions, with each region and state represented by an NAPSW member.  Your regional liaison and/or state representative can be a great resource to learn more about NAPSW and its available resources for networking and information sharing.   Below the map of the NAPSW regions is a list of each regional liaison and state representative. To find your representative, locate your region on the map below and click on the link below the map for your corresponding region. Not every region has an assigned representative and NAPSW members who have interest in fulfilling that role should contact the NAPSW Vice President, Hannah Raiden-Wright.  Click here to learn more about serving as a regional liaison or state rep.
