It is my hope that many students will be inattendance at the 44 th Annual National Conference! Attendance at theNational Conference affords you many opportunities. It is certainly a blessing and privilege to have founders of our organization living andable to give their personal account of the rich history of theestablishment and mission of NABSW. Additionally, you have theopportunity to network with professionals from across the country andabroad. From Black Adoptions, to founders of organizations, toprofessionals who have played key roles in African-Centered practiceand/or the Black Family, to individuals simply delighted to share theirexperiences in Social Work/Social Welfare, the experiences are rich,fruitful, and invaluable. The Office of Student Affairs has worked very hard to prepare a schedule for students that offer varied experiencesand opportunities; we hope you enjoy them. Additionally, please takethe opportunity to purchase your NABSW apparel from the Office of Student Affairs and other items from the many vendors who will be present at conference. Jesse J. Lewis/John Hayman states „The tendency in the Black Community is to turn the dollar over once and it‟s gone. The more business you do with Black businesses, the more opportunity your brothers and sisters have of bringing their businesses to where you think they ought to be”. As you tour & spend time in  Atlanta, we hope you do so with this thought in mind. We look forward to seeing you in Atlanta and we stand ready to assist  you in having a wonderful conference experience!Live Well, Be Well, Do Well,Tameka L.
