Mark your calendars for March 2, 2018. The WSU School of Social Work is proud to bring you the 15th annual POWER Conference. This year's theme is "Forensic Social Work: Elevating Practice, Progress, and the Law." We invite you to join us as an exhibitor or sponsor of one of the most well attended conferences in Wichita supporting the social work profession and other service fields.

This is a great opportunity for agencies and organizations to reach social workers and social work students who will be graduating in May and who will be looking for employment. In addition, as exhibitors and sponsors, you will be able to make your work known to other members of the social service community who may not be familiar with the services you provide.
