SARASOTA/MANATEE UNIT


Message from Unit Chair:


I am thankful to our members, and potential members, for participating in our networking events and meetings.  I look forward to meeting many more of you in the new year! 

We ended 2017 with a Holiday Party at Libby's Café & Bar in Sarasota. 

0n January 17, we begin the new year with a CE presentation by Kristina Bilicki Paape, LCSW.  "Finding Light in Darkness: Healing and Hope in the Year after Pulse."  It will be held at the Fruitville Library from 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm.  (Social from 5:50-6:00; presentation from 6:00-7:00.) 

In March, we celebrate Social Work Month by holding two events.  On March 16, we have our annual CE Event on Veteran Issues: Homelessness; Suicide; Women's Issues/Domestic Violence.  In addition to the three presentations, we will have a panel discussion.  The location is TBA.  On March 26, we will hold our annual awards dinner at Libby's Café & Bar from 6-8 pm.  Please SAVE THE DATE for both of these events!

If you have any ideas that would be beneficial to our unit, I would like to hear them.  Thank you for your work on behalf of our community!


Please contact me with any suggestions or concerns at sarasotamanatee.naswfl@socialworkers.org.
