February 2017 - Southern District Update

Lindsey Adams

Hello Southern District!

Wanted to give a shout out to our newest NASW members, living and working in our region: McKenna Halter, Bobbie Davis, Sam Baxter, and Megan Wellborn.


March 31, 2017 - Mark your calendars!  Our district is pairing up with IASSW of our region to offer two exceptional presentations.  Registration begins at 8:30am with the first session starting at 9:00.  Resolving Ethical Dilemmas, will be presented by Ruth Lipschutz, LCSW, and will take care of the 3 required Ethics CEUs for licensure. The afternoon session will be presented by Jennifer Brobst, JD, LLM and will on Legal Issues for Vulnerable Clients and Social Work Providers in Trauma Treatment.  Both of these ladies have great information to share.  For more information and to register for either the morning session, afternoon session, or both, go to: http://www.naswil.org/calendar/events/4468/


2017 Chapter Leadership Opportunities!  Do you want to make a difference for Social Workers in Illinois and beyond?  Do you have expertise in a particular method or field of practice?  If so, consider joining the NASW Illinois Chapter Board of Directors.  This is a great way to implement change, share your knowledge, and voice your opinions!  Consider getting involved in your professional association!  I will be stepping down as the Southern District Chairperson at the end of this fiscal term.  I have truly enjoyed my time on the board, and have found it to be a wonderful leadership experience.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or you can learn more about it at:  http://www.naswil.org/news/chapter-news/featured/call-for-leadership-2017-chapter-leadership-opportunities/
