Carol H. Fisher, LCSW

Warm greeting to the frozen membership of Jane Addams District! Here’s what’s coming up the the District.

The Private Practice Network is up and running on the fourth Tuesday of each month for all who are interested in starting, improving, or growing a private practice.  Meetings will be held at Johnny Pamcakes (3700 E. State St., Rockford) starting at (ugh) 7:30 a.m. and will last about an hour.  Need better referrals?  Trouble with billing?  Technology trouble?  Bring your questions and answers and business cards!  Private Practice Network will meet Feb. 27th, March 27th, April 24th, and May 22nd.  E-mail me with your questions.

Save the date for our Social Work Month event on March 5 at Prairie Street Brewhouse in the Peacock Room.  Socializing/networking time will begin at 6:00 followed by a presentation by Sandra Williams, LCSW titled Self Care:  Beyond Mindfulness to Full Body Presence starting at 7:00.  Earn one CEU (free for members) while learning about this unique twist on self care integrating mindfulness with body awareness to release stress.  For details and to register click here:  http://www.naswil.org/calendar/events/4854  or https://NASW IL.wufoo.com/forms/Jane-Addams-district-CEU-event-030518/.

Finally, consider whether you might like to take on a leadership role in NASW-Illinois Chapter.  We’re looking for the next Jane Addams District Chairperson to be on the NASW-IL Board.  You’ll learn a ton, meet amazing people from around the state, and provide an NASW presence right here in Northern Illinois.  The leadership article in this newsletter for more details.
