SARASOTA/MANATEE UNIT


 Greetings,

I hope everyone is doing well.

We had a virtual kickoff event on September 21, 2020 on Zoom and we had about 15 participants. Susan Mankita, president of NASW-FL joined us. We attempted to do a business meeting on October 12, 2020 to discuss setting up a peer consultation group for the unit where clinician can consult with other clinicians on their cases, but we had technical issues. The meeting has been rescheduled for 10/19/2020 at 5:30. I apologize for the inconvenience, and I hope you will join us next Monday.


I will be doing the required CE courses virtually on Zoom for licensure beginning in October. The required courses for the biennium must be completed by March 31, 2021.
