Welcome to the Palm Beach Unit!!
We have gone Virtual!!!
We will continue to assess the situation due to COVID-19 and provide virtual meetings for participants until it is safe to meet in person.
We plan to have 3 events during the months of June, July and August which will be free for all to attend. Please check back monthly for information about these events.
We offer 16 opportunities for 16 CE hours, in our season that runs from Sept through May. These events typically take place on the second and third Mondays of each month. In addition, we have a monthly meeting of our Racial Justice Task Force that typically meets the 4th Monday of each month, as well as a sprinkling of other events throughout that includes our annual March Social Work Awards Event and Holiday Party!
