From the Chair

Message from the Co-Chairs: May 2021
Deb Adams and Rachel West, Interim Co-Chairs
Published on: 5/5/2021
In this message, we want to highlight two particularly important accomplishments. First, the Macro Social Work Student Network (MSWSN) is building a very large email distribution list of current students who are the future of ACOSA! Thanks to all student leaders, along with Alberto Cifuentes, Jr., Tamarie Willis, and Becki Sander who have provided support for the Network. New chapters are emerging across the country and hundreds of people have attended the three webinars hosted by MSWSN this year. You are making a big difference!
