Call for Presentations: 2017 NASW-Illinois Chapter Statewide Conference

The NASW-Illinois Chapter is now accepting presentation proposals for its 2017 statewide conference to be held October 23 through 25, 2017, at The Westin North Shore in Wheeling, IL. More than seventy one-and-a-half hour workshops will be presented over three days and will cover a variety of social work-related issues and fields. Those with all levels of experience in presenting are welcome to apply for a workshop slot.

Presenting at the statewide conference is an excellent opportunity to promote your experience, research, and in some ways, your business and/or practice. (Other than a flyer placed in your room, no direct sales can occur in the presentation areas.)

Criteria for Selection:

Submissions will be judged on clarity of content, relevance to the social work knowledge base, presentation of new or unique and visionary approaches to practice methods or models and policy and research, as well as nonprofit business and leadership practices. We do not accept presentations that are direct advertisements for your services/or products.

A volunteer panel of experts will evaluate the submissions. The submissions will not include personal information at the time of evaluation. The submissions will be evaluated as they are submitted. Early submission DOES improve your chances of being accepted as there is more time for clarification or to send back the submission for modification.


Submissions must be entered online no later than May 31, 2017. Notification of acceptance will be made before June 23, 2017.

Fee/Equipment Details:

  • Presenters will receive CEUs for presentations they create specifically for this event.
  • LCD projectors* and a screen are FREE. (You must bring your own laptop if using PowerPoint.)
  • Presenters are allowed to bring their OWN equipment for their presentation.
  • Any additional equipment other than a LCD projectors and screens are the responsibility of the speaker to provide or rent.
