Founded in 1986, NADD is a volunteer membership organization dedicated to promoting excellence in social work education. Voisin was elected to the post by a majority of the members, which include more than 200 deans, directors and chairpersons of graduate school social work programs throughout North America.
Voisin, who recently began his three-year term as NADD president, said he plans to focus on “collaborating with other major social work organizations to address the significant shortage of mental-health providers across the country in the presence of growing behavioral health needs, while ensuring the protection of the public good.”
As president, Voisin will also collaborate with the board of directors to convene semi-annual membership meetings, provide oversight and execution of the organization’s strategic plan and bylaws, report to the membership, fundraise and consult with leadership from other social work organizations. He will also represent NADD at national forums and meetings.
