The nature coast unit held its first licensure renewal CEU event of the year.  We want to thank Earl Ledford, LCSW, CST, CAP, CET who presented an excellent lecture on the implications of Ethics and Technology in Social Work at Rasmussen College in Land O’ Lakes. There were Social Workers from Nature Coast and the Tampa Bay Units in attendance. 

We hope you will join us for the December 7 three CEU Laws and Rules licensure renewal event at St. Leo University presented by Billy Spivey, ACSW, LCSW and Tanya Bertke, ACSW, QCSW, C-ASWCM.

You will be receiving a survey in the next month that seeks your input and concerns of social workers in the Nature Coast Unit.

The theme for this year’s Social Work Month and Annual Conference is Social Workers: Generations Strong. Plan to attend the March 21 Social Work Month event at St. Leo University. The 3 CEU Medical Errors course will be offered on that day and the recognition of the annual unit Social Work Award recipients. This event will extend from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Details will be forthcoming.

The Nature Coast Unit thanks Jim Akin and Christine Call at the FL Chapter Office for their their assistance in organizing and scheduling workshops presenters.

Unit Leadership recruitment continues, and we need a Vice Chair, Secretary, CONLI Chair, BSW and MSW student representatives.  We ask that you seriously consider joining the leadership team. It is important to have members from the various geographic areas of the unit.  We need to have social workers from the West side of the unit as well as the North join the leadership team.
We look forward to seeing you,​

George A. Jacinto, PhD, LCSW, PLLC
Interim Chair of the Nature Coast Unit
