We are calling for any Expressions of Interest for a qualified social worker to be the new Convenor of the group so it can continue on.  You must also be a current financial member of the AASW.     

If you are interested in applying, please email the branch office registering your interest.  Please also contact the branch office if you have any further questions you would like to ask about the role.
