When the project ended, faculty from Alabama and Mississippi schools decided to form a conference so they could further the bonds they had developed. Objectives of the conference were: to promote transfer of information among schools providing social welfare education courses in the states of Alabama and Mississippi; to provide a forum for  issues and problems of regional importance for the two states; and to enable individual schools and faculty members to be sensitive and responsive to the changing demands of social work education. The first three conferences were hosted by the University of Alabama, and starting in 1975 the conference was rotated among social work programs in the two states. Today, representatives from all 27-CSWE accredited social work programs in  Alabama and Mississippi, as well as programs from surrounding states participate in the annual conference. Many of these programs bring their students who  participate in programming and seek out employment and further educational opportunities.
