MESSAGE FROM THE UNIT
Hello, Social Workers!
I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer and that you're off to the beginning of a great new season. We're getting off to a great start with respect to planning our NASW upcoming season. We have our next steering committee meeting on Sunday, Sept 10 at 2 pm in WPB. We encourage anyone who has a little time and some interest in getting involved to join us at this planning meeting. I promise we won't rope you into doing more than you want. We appreciate having people share their thoughts and ideas even if you don't take on a larger role. We're an enthusiastic group of amazing social workers and we appreciate having more voices and bodies.
As a reminder, we offer 8 opportunities for 8 CE hours, 8 sponsored dinners and 8 networking events in our season that runs from Sept through May (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 help planning some of these events.
Please visit http://www.naswfl.org/palm-beach-unit.html to see what events are already scheduled. Sept 11th on crossover symptoms, Sept 18th on narcissism, Oct 9th on the therapists tool box and Oct 16 on neurobiology are already filling up fast!
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!
So far this season our sponsors are:
Hope to see everyone soon!
Joyce Lampert, LCSW
