Annual Conference

NAPSW presents a clinical conference every year; one of the largest gatherings of Perinatal Social Workers from across the United States and Canada. NAPSW supports the unique experience of perinatal social workers and facilitates connections among this outstanding group of professionals. We hope you will join us to learn many aspects of perinatal care from social work experts as well as other professionals. It is an excellent opportunity to meet perinatal colleagues, make valuable contacts, and earn CEUs.  NAPSW rotates the conference location to provide everyone a chance to attend.  

SAVE THE DATE for the 2022 NAPSW Conference in Chicago!

The 46th Annual National Association of Perinatal Social Workers Conference, Securing the Good in the Second City: Perinatal Social Work for All will be held May 4-7, 2022 in Chicago, Illinois, and we cannot wait to see you there!

January 24, 2022 Update from the Chicago Conference Committee:

The Chicago Conference Committee continues their hard work in organizing what looks to be a fabulous conference for us in May! A few members have reached out questioning if we will meet in person due to COVID. A lot of thought has gone into this question and the answer is yes. We are a small non-profit organization and cannot afford to do a hybrid conference. We have a signed contract with the hotel that we cannot afford to break. We have a wonderful slate of speakers for you. Chicago requires proof of vaccination and we will have masks available for attendees. Of course, we respect if the conference does not work for some members this year, but we are hopeful that COVID will have decreased significantly and you will feel comfortable with the precautions we've taken. A few details to hold you over until the conference brochure is available on February 23, 2022:

Conference Dates: May 4-7, 2022
The Westin Chicago River North

Members will receive an email on Monday, January 24th, that will include a link to book a hotel room at the NAPSW rate.

Please stay tuned for the official conference brochure and details on the speakers next month. Until then, I would direct you to conference co-chairs Kimberly Stobbe and Erin Danahy with any questions or concerns:
