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.
If you would like an opportunity to provide a 15 minute presentation on your agency or program at an upcoming Networking Breakfast or be added to our chapter mailing list for information on future events, please email Rebecca Carter with your email/contact information and she will add you to the list: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please join us for the Professional Social Workers & Social Work Students Mentoring Hour on September 7, 2017 - This is CANCELLED because of Hurricane Irma
This is an opportunity for students to meet social workers from the local community and learn about their areas of practice. Refreshments will be served!
Students do not need to RSVP but we are asking that professional social workers who have 1 hour to spend with students to email either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org so we will be able to communicate with you and plan for the discussion.
