TAMPA BAY UNIT



Greetings, Tampa Bay Unit Social Workers.

Our Unit’s program year pretty much runs September through our annual Florida Chapter Conference in June. We seem to “take a break” in July and August, then pick right back up again in September.

Our schedule for this year therefore, included hosting a “School Board Candidates Forum” in September where 80% of the individuals running for office attended and presented their positions on key issues impacting students in Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties.  More recently, the Unit Legislative Co-chair, Elizabeth Mead, worked with the Florida Chapter Legislative Chair Professor Christina Cazanave to inform state legislators in the Pinellas and Hillsborough counties about Social Work Month.
