​​​​​​MESSAGE FROM THE UNIT


Hello Social Workers!!

Welcome to the Palm Beach County Chapter!! 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

Remember to register for the March event - this is a great opportunity to network, learn and connect with other professionals in our community. 

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!!

Hope to see you at one of our next meetings!  If you would like to become more involved in the chapter please email me.
