ASGW Biennial Conference
Group Work Innovations in a Transforming World
The world is facing major challenges that impact the ways in which groups come together and operate. As group workers, we embrace a culture of innovation to foster connections, social justice, and advocacy during these unprecedented times. This conference seeks to highlight creative and innovative group work examples that have positively impacted the profession at local and global levels.
The event will be held at One Ocean Resort & Spa in Atlantic Beach just outside of Jacksonville, Florida.
The keynote luncheon is one of the special highlights of the conference. Join us to hear Dr. Ana Puig facilitate a distinguished panel as they bring to life the conference theme. The facilitator and panelists include:
