NBASW Professional Development Fund

The NBASW Professional Development Fund is awarded annually to NBASW members who present a webinar training opportunity for provincial social worker(s) in their area of knowledge, expertise and/or practice. To be eligible to receive the Fund, social workers must apply to present a webinar by completing a Webinar Information Form. Applications will be evaluated on a first come first serve basis. If the webinar application has been approved and the applicant has met all webinar requirements, including webinar presentation, they will receive the Fund in the form of registration dues reimbursement. The Fund is equivalent to the amount of NBASW registration dues paid by that member for the current fiscal year. The NBASW Professional Development Fund provides a knowledge sharing mechanism and enhanced educational opportunities for NBASW members.

Value and Frequency

The Fund is available for approximately six members to present webinars through this initiative. While every effort will be made to administer the fund in full annually, if there are no eligible applicants for a given year, the NBASW reserves the right to use the allotted funds toward other educational opportunities for members or may choose to carry over the remaining funds to the following year.
