Executive Director: Sandra Kerns, MEd., MSW, LCSW


February 27, 2019
Dear NASW Alaska Chapter Membership,
The Board and I would like to let you know that the Executive Director’s position for our Alaska Chapter will be open and soon advertised through NASW JobLink and our NASW AK website.  Please watch for the position announcement and share among your colleagues for recruiting a candidate with the best fit for an Executive Director’s statewide position.  
The tenure I have enjoyed with NASW Alaska Chapter has been fruitful for our state.  We have built a solid infrastructure within our state for a NASW Alaska office.  I will continue as Executive Director, though with reduced working hours, until a new leader has been chosen and on-boarded.  I am excited to mentor an individual towards success in this position of leadership.  This is a great year to begin a leadership position with NASW AK Chapter as we have our Spring Board Elections and Fall Biennial Conference.
I will be turning more of my attention back to clinical work with my private practice.  As social workers we can wear many hats, yet for most of us there is one path that is often our “true north”.  For those of you that know me personally, I am sure you would agree that clinical counseling is my passion.  Though the times I serve in macro management work results in organizational enhancements for the company and professional growth for me.  We are always learning, always we begin again and then again!
Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of NASW leadership.
Sandra J. Kerns, MEd., MSW, LCSW
Executive Director
