NASW Member Services (800) 742-4089


The Arkansas Chapter NASW encourages the highest level of membership participation possible through activities at the local level. Local branches of the chapter were established to represent members in the decision making process of the chapter and to facilitate membership activity at the local level. These branches are geographically defined and each branch is entitled to representation on the chapter Board of Directors. View the NASW-AR Chapter Branch Map to see who represents you. For information on any branch activity contact the branch representative or the NASW Chapter Office.
