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. A limited room block is available to ASGW Conference attendees at the special room rate of $175 per night plus taxes and fees. Rooms may be available 3 days pre-and post-conference at the same rate. Don’t delay. Rooms are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Reserve your room now.
The nearest full-service airport is the Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) which is approximately 26 miles from the hotel.
