 We are going to move to evening meetings this year and will incorporate an informational/unit update meeting with an educational event.  This will be a monthly event, but it will rotate between Pensacola and the Niceville/FWB area. 

Moving forward, our future NASW meetings will be from 5:30 – 6:00 and the guest speaker will present from 6-7 pm.  Locations, topics, speakers, all of that good stuff are all being finalized.   We hope to have everything finalized for the entire year within the next few weeks, so please look for an update.

 If you were one of the wonderful people who offered to be a speaker, please reach out to me individually ( so we can coordinate the date/location/topic for your presentation.  In addition, I would like to put together a panel of social workers for a student presentation of…A day in the life of a social worker.  If you are interested in participating in this, please let me know.

This unit belongs to all of us, so please speak up if there is an event that you wish we had, but you don’t see it listed.  Fair warning….you may be asked to volunteer to head it up if you ask. We do want to add community service projects, but need help with planning these.  If you saw other areas of need or have a specific skill or talent you would like utilized, certainly let me know, and we will put you to work.  IT skills are always welcome.

Looking forward to an exciting new year!
