Hello Members and Visitors!   

Thank you for visiting our page! This is a very important time of the year for Professional Social Workers all across the world! National Professional Social Work Month in March 2019 is an opportunity for social workers around the nation and world and their supporters to educate the public about the invaluable contributions of the profession.

This year's campaign's focus is also on Elevating Social Work - beginning the very important conversation on how to boost the pay of social workers, which continues to lag behind that of other helping professions.  We hope that you will take the time out of your very busy schedules to come out and celebrate with your fellow colleagues and social workers! We encourage you to practice a little self-love and self-care! Join us for a free lunch, fun networking, a great workshop, delicious food, gift giveaways, awards and recognition.

On behalf of the NASW-Florida Chapter and the Treasure Coast Unit, our sponsors and exhibitors, we dedicate this day to you! Bring your friends and family sign up today - It's a Celebration!
