Our 2018 conference registration is now open under the conference tab.



The Virginia Association for Specialists in Group Work (VASGW) is a branch of the Association for Specialists in Group Work (ASGW) and a division of the Virginia Counseling Association (VCA). As counseling professionals with a special interest in group work, we strive to advance the field of group counseling by extending opportunities for professional development and by sharing information related to group work.

VASGW conducts an annual group counseling conference each spring. The 2018 Group-A-Rama Conference will be held on Friday, April 13th at the Annandale campus of the Northern Virginia Community College in the Ernst Cultural Center.  We hope to see you there.

In February,2018 at the ASGW (Association for Specialist in Group Work) conference VASGW was once again awarded “Outstanding Branch.”  Unfortunately, this year none of the board members were able to attend to receive the award.  Below is a picture of Ellissia Price and Terri Mason (both past presidents) receiving the 2016 award at the conference.
