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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
