The Special Commission today is a collaboration of multiple partners and stakeholders. It is comprised of 26 commissioners, who are leading macro social work scholars and practitioners. These commissioners lead the Special Commission’s five Action Clusters, which work under the oversight of the Leadership Committee to expand and promote the status of macro practice in the field of social work. The work of these Action Clusters are supplemented by multiple task forces and working groups who are responsible for special projects and  initiatives. For more information about our Leadership Committee, Commissioners, please visit our Leadership. For more information about our Action Clusters, Working Groups, and Special Projects Task Force please visit our Action Clusters

Special Commission is supported by our Macro Investor Programs, schools of social work who have partnered with us through their financial contributions under the leadership of their wonderful deans, directors, and department chairs. The Special Commission is very grateful to the 90+ Macro Investor Programs who have supported us, many of whom have given year after year.

The Special Commission also has the support of 500+ Network Members and Allies, who contribute to the Special Commission, who receive regular macro social work updates and help us through providing their time, creativity, and connections.
