The Big Bend Unit continues to host a monthly Networking Breakfast on the 4th Tuesday of each month from 8:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m. You are invited to come and learn more about community resources and local agencies as well as network with your social work colleagues.  Social Work students and professional social workers are encouraged to attend our networking breakfasts, even if you are not a member of NASW. 

The meeting is held at Tapestry Senior Living of Tallahassee - 2516 W. Lakeshore Drive, Tallahassee, FL 32303 - and they have graciously agreed to donate breakfast each month  This is a wonderful opportunity for social workers, social work educators, and social work students to get to know one another.
