Welcome to the Palm Beach Unit!!
We have gone Virtual!!!
We will continue to assess the situation due to COVID-19 and provide virtual meetings for participants until it is safe to meet in person.
We plan to have 3 events during the months of June, July and August which will be free for all to attend. Please check back monthly for information about these events.
As a reminder, we offer 16 opportunities for 16 CE hours, 16 sponsored dinners and 16 networking events in our season that runs from Sept through May at our two locations (2nd Monday in PBG, 3rd Monday in Boca) as well as a sprinkling of other events throughout that includes our annual March Social Work Awards Event!
We can definitely use your help planning some of these events and encourage you to get more involved with the Palm Beach NASW Unit. This is a great way to meet great people, get connected, learn about other events in the community, job opportunities and more!! It does not take much time to participate and get involved. We will mentor you through the process and in most positions you will work collaborative with the other co-chair. If you are interested please email me (see email below)
Positions that need to be filled:
Technology Chair – Post our events to Facebook
March Event – Co-Chair
Sponsorship Co- Chair
Also, we encouraged everyone to get to know our sponsors. If you believe they could be a good fit for any of your clients, we encourage you to send some business their way! If you know anyone who would like to sponsor an event please let us know. This is a great way to connect the community to NASW Palm Beach!!
Just to catch up on the exciting events that we NASW Palm Beach Unit has participated in since May. We participated in two pinning ceremonies for BSW MSW and DSW graduates from Florida Atlantic University and Barry University. We also participated at FAU’s orientation program for social work students entering the social work bachelors, masters and doctoral programs.
Hope to see you at one of our next meetings! If you would like to become more involved in the Unit please email me and you can attend our next steering committee meeting in August to learn more about our group and how to become a part of it!
