Welcome to The NY Capital Region Case Management Society

The New York Capital Region Case Management Society (NYCRCMS) is YOUR local CMSA chapter. NYCRCMS was formed in July 2011 by a dynamic group of people committed to case management as a profession to support the devoted case managers in the Capital Region. CMSA says local chapters are the building blocks of the association. Through our organized community events and activities we help support CMSA’s national initiatives by getting the word out to the public and local legislators that CMSA is committed to collaborating with health care organizations and associations to broad the knowledge and resources of its members and the industry.

We invite you to join CMSA and NYCRCMS (NY5). http://www.cmsa.org/membership/individual-membership/

March is Social Work Month

Social workers are essential to community well-being.

As practitioners, social workers are trained to help people address personal and systemic barriers to optimal living.

They are employed to effect positive change with individuals, families, groups and entire communities.

As a profession, social workers frequently use their collective power to pass laws and establish policies that give more people access to community services and benefits, improving the quality of life for everyone.

Social work is the only helping profession which requires social justice advocacy as part of its professional code of ethics, and is therefore a large workforce mandated to advance the rights of the most vulnerable in society.

For more than 120 years, the social work profession in the United States has helped bend the arc of justice, making our nation a more equitable and inclusive place.

“Social workers often are unsung heroes, but they play an essential role in helping people from all walks of life and backgrounds to live life to the fullest. During social work month we hope you will learn more about this amazing profession, say a kind word to the social workers in your lives, and advocate for policies and legislation that benefit the profession and the populations they serve.”


Due to the pandemic, scheduling of chapter dinner meetings have been on hold, but we still want you to know how important you are to us. 

As a result, The New York Capital Region Case Management Society, along with The Central New Jersey, Hudson Valley, Long Island, New York City and Mid Atlantic Chapters, have formed an educational coalition and have partnered with CE-ZOOM as our platform to provide you quality CE accredited events.  

We will strive to keep you informed of any educational programming that becomes available to you.
