​​​​​​​​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.


We offer 16 opportunities for 16 CE hours, in our season that runs from Sept through May. These events typically take place on the second and third Mondays of each month. In addition, we have a monthly meeting of our Racial Justice Task Force that typically meets the 4th Monday of each month, as well as a sprinkling of other events throughout that includes our annual March Social Work Awards Event and Holiday Party! 

Join our Steering Committee!!! We want to hear your voice, learn what you are passionate about, incorporate new ideas, develop new programs. Getting involved in the Palm Beach NASW unit can is an amazing opportunity to give a voice to your profession!! Take on a big role or just add to the meetings.  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 collaboratively with the other co-chair. If you are interested, please email me (see email below.

Some open positions are: South County CE/Speaker Chair and Co-chair, Technology Co-Chair, Sponsorship Chair and Co-Chair, Membership Co-Chair, Secretary.

Also, we encouraged everyone to get to know our sponsors.
