TAMPA BAY UNIT


(Updated 1/16/18)

Happy New Year! And I do believe it will be a momentous and memorable one for our Tampa Bay Unit.   Jack Smith will have another meeting with the Director of the University of South Florida School of Social Work, Dr. Riann van Zyl. The focus of this January 24th meeting will revolve around our mutual efforts to build a strong relationship between the School of Social Work and our Tampa Bay Unit. In the event you have concerns you'd like Jack to address at this meeting, please email him at tampabay.naswfl@socialworkers.org.

On the 29th and 30th of January, many of us will be headed to Tallahassee to participate in LEAD. If you're planning to do so, please consider making an appointment with your respective State Representative and/or State Senator for January 30th.  By doing so, you will almost assure yourself of time with these elected officials to advocate for the legislation that NASW-FL needs to further the cause of social justice in our state. Also, Jack is organizing a car pool so if you'd like to travel to Tallahassee on January 29th and return to the Tampa Bay area on January 30th, please contact him.

As we move into February, please circle February 10, 2018, on your calendar. On that date, our Unit will host Dr. George Jacinto and JJ Beggs for their 3 CE Workshop on Diversity. Given the times we now live in, could there be a more relevant topic for our members?  Looking down the road to March, we will hold our annual Social Work Month Celebration  on March 10th at Allegro Hyde Park in Tampa.  Due to popular demand, we will be having another Networking Meeting in either February or March 2018. Please contact Jack if you have a preferred date and/or location for this event. 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. 

Cheers!

Jack
