East Bay/San Francisco

To provide local professional development, peer support, advocacy, and resource-sharing opportunities to school social workers and to develop CASSW membership in the North/East Bay/San Francisco region.

The North/East Bay/San Francisco region began to develop a local presence in the fall of 2008 when local school social workers organized the annual CASSW conference in Oakland, CA. Since 2010-2011, school social workers have met locally for ongoing professional development, peer support, and organizing for the profession and client needs.

Area & Meetings
BASSW (Bay Area School Social Workers) currently covers the north bay region, including the following counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Rosa, Solano, and Sonoma. This area may change as other local groups strengthen in numbers.
