Utah Chapter

The Utah Society for Social Work Leadership in Health Care, founded in 1987, is a statewide organization that values and strives to promote and support the development of social work leaders in all areas of health care.  We emphasize the vital contribution social workers have on increasing wellness in health care.  Our strength in meeting these goals is due to our outstanding members,  offering educational opportunities, advocacy for positive change in our field and our strong relationship with the national organization, SSWLHC.

Membership Dues
Currently, to attend quality conferences and CEU opportunities in our community, regionally and nationally, the average rate per CEU is about $10. As a USSWLHC member, you have the opportunity to receive 16 CEU’s per year at no additional cost other than your membership dues. At the average national rate, this would be a cost of $160 per member to offer this quantity and quality of continuing education each year. For our members, it is less than $3 per CEU (food included).

To keep up with the cost of running a state-wide professional organization for social work leaders and to continue to expand opportunities for CEU’s, the board has decided to increase the membership dues effective January 1, 2015. The current rates are listed below, and with no drop in the number of CEU opportunities, your increased cost as an LCSW member would be less than $4 per CEU.

The following reflects the increased price changes, effective January 1, 2015:

  • LCSW fee: $60
  • CSW fee: $50
  • SSW fee: $40
  • LCSW,CSW, or SSW (Retired) fee: $30
  • Current MSW Student: free for 1 year membership
