Historical Note

The Arkansas Conference on Social Welfare was founded in 1912 as the Arkansas Conference of Charities and Corrections to create a public forum for the discussion of social issues including education, child welfare, occupational therapy, motherhood, mental health, and the establishment of community centers. The organization changed its name to the Arkansas Conference on Social Work in the 1920s. In 1960, the name changed again to the Arkansas Conference on Social Welfare. After the late 1970s, there is no mention of the Conference in media outlets. As of 2015, it is unknown if the Conference is still active.

Many prominent members of the Arkansas community were affiliated with the Conference. Gus Blass, Arkansas businessman and store owner, was a member and Ira Sanders (1894-1985), first dean of what would become the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and well known social welfare advocate, served as president.
