Be a part of a spectacular learning opportunity for social workers and other helping professionals in our region! This year's theme centers on the power of creativity - how is it that we not only think outside the box, but redefine the box into new shapes, purposes, and applications. Mix and match sessions that provide you with the right opportunities to expand your skills, knowledge, and expertise. 

Attendees have the opportunity to engage in one of our three-hour pre-conference sessions, focused on either diagnosis or ethics, as well as the main conference day.  We've expanded our CEU offerings this year, so you can earn even more hours, and we are excited by the social event lined up for Thursday evening, as well.  Mingle with your colleagues, meet our keynote, and have some fun with your own creative, hands-on activities with us!

Mark your calendars for March 1, 2019! The Wichita State University School of Social Work is proud to bring you the 16th Annual POWER Conference. This year's theme is "The Creative POWER of Social Work: Innovation, Intersection and Intervention" 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 social service fields.

This is a great opportunity for agencies and organizations to reach social workers and social work students in the Wichita area and have their message heard. Many exhibitors will want to connect with students who will be graduating in May and who will be looking for employment. In addition, exhibitors and sponsors 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.
