On December 7 from 11-1pm, NASW Miami Dade Unit held their yearly holiday get together. It was a jolly good time. We had about 25 people attend our event, many attending for the first time. Everyone mentioned interest in being more involved within our unit which is great news for all of us. Unit Chair Paty took some time to introduce the leadership team, offer updates, and thanked everyone for being present.
