March 24, 2018


We've planned a memorable evening to celebrate social work. Starting at 6:00 p.m., you can enjoy cocktails from the cash bar and the smooth jazz of E-Flat. The program and dinner will begin at 7:00 p.m., followed by a late night of dancing and mingling. You'll hear from our emcee, ACLU of Ohio Board Member Hasan Kwame Jeffries, and honor exemplary social workers.


The Location: Columbus Athenaeum, a beautifully restored urban palace located in the heart of downtown Columbus.


Parking is available at the 4th & Elm Garage (80 North 4th Street) for $2/hour or $10 max.


Details: It’s a black-tie optional affair so wear your best outfit and bring your dancing shoes! The cost is $50 per ticket (includes dinner) and all are welcome to attend. You can purchase tickets here.


You can sleep in style at The Renaissance Downtown for $155 (usual rate is $249). Book online at or call 877-901-6632 and ask for NASW Ohio Chapter Room Block.
