The web and face to face cohorts elect a President , Vice President and Secretary/Treasurer each year at the beginning of Fall semester.  The GSWO may represent the cohorts at faculty meetings, hold social functions,  conduct  fundraisers for community projects  and engage in other activities that support the student body, faculty and professional social work. All social work students in the program are members of GSWO. There is no fee for membership.
