NASW Nevada Chapter will work to meet challenges in aftermath of Las Vegas mass shooting



Our nation grieves after yet another horrific mass shooting. This one has occurred close to home at an outdoor concert on our Las Vegas strip. The actions of a lone individual resulted in the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history. The National Association of Social Workers Nevada Chapter offers its deepest sympathies to the victims’ families and friends, and visitors to our city.


Social workers will support the direct provision of behavioral health, care coordination, and social services to the individuals and their loved ones. State and local government officials will look to social workers to help them mitigate the adverse consequences this tragedy has on our community. As a professional association, NASW-Nevada will work to help our social workers meet the challenges faced in the weeks and months to come.


The NASW National Office will issue a statement on this horrific incident soon as we reflect on this awful tragedy. Now is the time to mourn the loss of life, and support those grieving and the survivors.

NASW Risk Retention Group Rated Among Highest in the Nation

Frederick, Maryland – September 19, 2017—
NASW Risk Retention Group (RRG) is pleased to announce that it has been rated among the highest in the nation by the world’s largest, most authoritative and longest established company devoted to issuing financial strength ratings to insurance organizations. 

A.M. Best Company, has issued an ‘Excellent’ Financial Strength Rating to NASW Risk Retention Group.  This rating reflects the strong risk adjusted capitalization, profitable operating performance and niche market expertise in professional liability insurance designed specifically for the social work profession.  “This rating puts us in the same league as some of the leading insurance companies in the world.  A.M. Best only assigns this rating to a select group insurance companies. I think this speaks volumes about the stability and financial strength of the Professional Liability Insurance program.” says Tony Benedetto, CEO, NASW Risk Retention Group.


NASW Risk Retention Group, created and overseen by social workers, offers high quality liability products with very attractive benefits designed to meet the specific needs of the social work profession at competitive pricing for the value.  Unlike most insurance companies that focus mainly on creating profits, the NASW Risk Retention Group’s priority is to focus on what’s best for social workers and the entire profession.  “We strive to have the best benefits and coverage for social workers and this rating confirms we are on solid financial ground to do just that.” says Benedetto.  NASW Risk Retention Group advocates for policyholders in ways that make a real difference, like operating at significantly lower administrative costs than major competitors in order to keep premium down and customizing benefits to stay current with the needs of the social work profession.  NASW Risk Retention Group continues to offer valuable insurance coverage, risk management tools and relevant professional resources supporting members personally and professionally.

Below is information on how to help, we are as a chapter, not directly organizing efforts statewide but directing folks to resources.  Also you can check on the Facebook pages for Houston, Gulf Coast, Southeast Texas for local efforts and needs.  The Governor has temporarily suspended the need for a Texas license if you are working in a hospital and in some cases certified to accept Medicaid.  NASW/TX is asking him, our licensing board, and our state agency HHS, to temporarily suspend the need across the board for Texas Licenses so that out of state folks can assist.


You can check our website for updates which we are doing several times a day at Also keep in mind that if you decide to come and are not a part of an approved or organized group to provide services you might find lodging and food a challenge in addition to not having a license to practice in Texas.


Please go to the URL's below to register as a volunteer.  In the coming days and weeks we will know more and if you register with VOAD and Red Cross they can call you directly to help. If you are a certified Red Cross Volunteer your license is honored in the area/state you are sent to help.  


In the meantime, you can donate monies to the Red Cross Hurricane Harvey Fund and the Houston Disaster Fund or other local disaster funds for areas affected. Again thank you for your concern and caring about Texans effected by the Hurricane!

1908 President Theodore Roosevelt recognized the value of associations:

"Every man owes part of his time and money to the business or industry to which he is engaged. No man has a moral right to withhold his support from an organization that is striving to improve conditions within his sphere.




Through our Missouri membership's collective voice, NASW has dared to be professional leaders for over a Quarter of a Century!
