Unit Chairpersons and Co-Chairs 

Unit Chairpersons and Co-Chairs are responsible for having regular meetings which are open to the members in their Units. These meetings should be held at least four times a year. Unit Chairpersons keep the overall membership informed of their Unit activities and concerns through written/oral reports to the Board and articles in FOCUS.  They are responsible for recruiting social workers who are not members of NASW; identifying candidates for Chapter offices and soliciting nominations for Chapter awards; promoting NASW and the social work profession.
