August 2016 - Southern District Update

Lindsey Adams, LCSW

Hope everyone is having a great summer! It will soon be winding down as we welcome the cooler air and kids returning to school!

I wanted to take some time to welcome our newest NASW members: Cheri Moore, Lindsey Haverkamp, Cynthia Stoll, and Courtney Sandheinrich. Welcome aboard, ladies!


There will be a networking event on Thursday, September 15, 2016, from 5:00 to 7:00pm at PEEL in O'Fallon, IL. It's a great restaurant with wood-fired pizza, and it will be a great time of meeting with fellow colleagues. We've done this in the past and had a great turnout. It's always a fun time! You can RSVP by e-mailing me at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). No cost to attend if you are an NASW member, $10 for nonmembers.

I am also looking for speakers for an upcoming CEU event in November!  If you or someone you know would love this opportunity, please e-mail me!  We have had some great speakers in the past, and the turnout for events continues to grow. I've enjoyed getting to know several of you through these events. This is also how NASW provides free CEUs to their members!


The Business of Social Work: 2016 NASW Illinois Chapter Conference will be taking place on Thursday, October 20, 2016 at The Hilton Lisle. It was such a great event, that the Chapter is providing it again this year.  Lots of great information regarding the business side of having a private practice. Choose from over 10 workshops that will help you start a practice, grow your business, and become a leader. There will be up to 7.0 CEUs availbale, including ethics and cultural competency. The early bird special ends August 19, 2016.  Register here.
