About this Event

Greetings from the NASW Alaska Chapter 2019 Biennial Conference Planning Committee!

In 2019 you or your agency have the opportunity to make history. While it may sound dramatic, it’s true. The NASW Alaska Chapter’s conferences have a long rich history in Alaska, and to our knowledge, will be held in Juneau in September 2019 for the first time.

Our conference theme is Nurtured Hearts Nurture Hearts with our areas of focus on bodies, compassion for ourselves, awareness and ultimately unity. We have lined up three engaging keynote speakers with a worldwide presence:

Jes Baker, you might know her by her blog The Militant Baker, TED talk about body acceptance, or as the author of the books Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls: A Handbook for Unapologetic Living; and Landwhale: On Turning Insults into Nicknames, Why Body Image is Hard, and How Diets Can Kiss My Ass.

Dr. Alexis Shotwell, writes openly and honestly about living ethically in a challenging world where nothing we can do will make life perfect. An Associate Professor in Carleton University’s Dept. of Sociology and Anthropology with a cross-appointment with the Dept. of Philosophy, we’re in for a deep dive towards what it means to think the way we do.

Marjorie Kunaq Tahbone, is seen all over the world on Al Jazeera Media Network’s AJ+ series Untold America talking about how traditional tattooing helps Alaska Native women heal from historical and generational trauma, we are in awe of this Inupiaq woman from Nome.

Juneau offers a rich landscape – naturally and with its people. Nestled in the Tongass National (rain) Forest and steeped in primarily Alaska Native cultures of the Tlingit and Haida, Juneau will stick with a person for a long time. Locating our conference in Alaska’s capital emphasize the important relationship between social work and advocacy efforts. In addition to more traditional modes of sponsorship such as advertising in our vital conference program materials and exhibition booths, we have added an opportunity this year to donate a conference registration fee. By donating a conference registration fee you’ll receive extra recognition in our conference program and pre-conference marketing which includes social media.

Sponsorship payment deadline is August 5, 2019.We are thrilled to bring the NASW AK 2019 Biennial Conference to Juneau. Thank you for your support of NASW Alaska!
