The Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers is pleased to announce that it will be holding its Annual Meeting & Education Day (AMED) on Thursday, June 17 & Friday, June 18, 2021. AMED is part of the Glenda McDonald Educational Series.
In light of the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, and to ensure the safety of attendees and participants, this year’s AMED will be hosted entirely online via livestream. AMED will be conducted over a two-day period, with eight educational sessions that will take place throughout the two days.
This year’s theme is Diversity & Change in Society & Practice. The College is pleased to have Dr. Keith Adamson, RSW, as the keynote speaker on Thursday, June 17, 2021. Dr. Adamson will give the keynote on anti-Black racism – a follow-up presentation from his keynote at the College’s Educational Forum in the fall.
Participation and the CCP
College members can use their attendance at AMED, including their participation in any of the eight educational sessions, towards the completion of their Continuing Competence Program (CCP). The CCP ensures that social workers and social service workers are qualified, enhance their knowledge on an ongoing basis, and remain up to date in their practice throughout their careers.
Stay tuned for more information
College members will be required to register for the annual meeting and keynote address, and to select which educational sessions they wish to attend throughout the two days. During the livestreams, members will be able to participate by asking questions and/or making comments.
Please note that registration is not yet open. The College will provide more information about AMED 2021, including registration details, in the coming months.
