Schedule (Nov 18-21, 2021)

NACSW is currently planning on an in-person convention in November. However, depending on the state of COVID-19 in the Southern California area at that time, the format of this year’s convention is subject to change. NACSW will communicate with its members and friends as early as possible should the convention have to change to a virtual format to ensure the health and safety of convention participants, staff and volunteers.
