Kerry Dennis, ACSW, LCSW, MCAP, CSAT, SAP - Unit Chair



Let me introduce myself. My name is Kerry Dennis and I am the newly elected unit chair for the Sarasota-Manatee Unit. I served as unit chair in 2007 to 2009 and it is an honor to serve again as your unit chair. I hope everyone had a pleasant  summer.

I would like to continue alternating networking events with CE events throughout the year. I would also like to bring back the awards dinner and a 6-hour CE event in March during National Social Work Month.

Here is a proposed schedule of events: 

September 2019        Kickoff and Networking Event

October 2019             CE Event 

November 2019         CE Event

December 2019         Holiday Event

January 2020             CE Event

February 2020            Networking Event

March 2020                Awards Dinner

                                   6-hour CE Event

April 2020                   Networking Event 

May 2020                   CE Event 

June 2020                  Networking Event


July 2020                   Off   

August 2020               Off

September 2020        Kickoff and networking Event

October 2020             Required Licensure CE Event   

November 2020         Required Licensure CE Event  

December 2020         Holiday Event

January 2021             Required Licensure CE Event 

February 2021            Required Licensure CE Event 

March 2021                Award Dinner

I will be teaching the required licensure courses again this year and we will start early to avoid the mad dash in March for CEs. I would also like to propose that we get sponsors for our events, so if you know of a person or an organization who would like to sponsor one of our events, please let me know.

We will be having a steering committee meeting on 9/9/19 at 5:30 at Chili's on Cattleman and Bee Ridge to work the details of our event schedule

See you soon,
Chair of the Sarasota-Manatee Unit
