Billie ChapmanUW’s Chapman Named President of Wyoming Chapter of Social Workers

Billie Chapman, the University of Wyoming’s Division of Social Work field education director, recently was appointed president of the Wyoming chapter of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW).

NASW is the largest membership organization of professional social workers in the world that promotes its members’ professional development; maintenance of ethical standards of practice; and support for effective social policies.

Chapman, a UW alumna, has been with the UW Division of Social Work in the College of Health Sciences since fall 2018. She began her current leadership role with the Wyoming NASW chapter July 1.

“I was elected in 2020 for a one-year term as president-elect with the understanding that I would start a two-year term as president this July,” she says.

The Wyoming chapter serves its members by providing networking and continuing education opportunities, and acting as the lobbying body for any proposed policies or issues relevant to social work, Chapman explains.

“A couple of examples of particular significance in Wyoming in recent NASW sessions are suicide prevention, mental health licensing and service provision,” she adds. “The state chapter also provides assistance with consultation on ethical issues, licensing exam preparation and connecting social workers with job-finding resources.”
