Nancy Egger, LCSW

Welcome to fall! I hope you all are doing well and ready for a busy couple of months! We have a lot of events coming up, and I hope to see you at some of them! I've listed some below, but remember to check the NASW Illinois Chapter website perioidically for the latest on trainings around the state!  And watch your inboxes for some local CEU events coming soon!

 The Business of Social Work – October 20, 2016 | Lisle, IL  Earn 7 CEUs!

There is still time to register for The Business of Social Work!  The 2016 NASW Illinois Chapter Conference is taking place Thursday, October 20, 2016, at the Hilton Lisle. Choose from over 10 workshops that will help you start a practice, grow your business, and become a leader. With up to 7.0 continuing education units (CEUs) including sessions on ethics and cultural competency, there's something for everyone. Register today!

The Supervisory Leaders in Aging is beginning a second cohort- join and earn 30 CEU's!  If you are interested in working with seniors, this is a great opportunity!

The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) is excited to launch the Supervisory Leaders in Aging (SLA) program with generous funding from the John A. Hartford Foundation. Supervisory Leaders in Aging is designed to improve the delivery of health care and social services to older adults by strengthening the supervision of staff providing direct social services to older adults and their families. This innovative professional development program will be implemented as an educational offering providing 30 continuing education units (CEUs), including three units in cultural competency. Participants must be available to attend trainings beginning in March 2017. Trainings will consist of five full-day workshops (6 hours each day, 30 hours total). 


Please start thinking about who YOU would like to honor!  Yes, it's time to plan for the 2017 SOCIAL WORK AWARDS!

Deadline: Tuesday, January 17,  2017

Nominations are now being accepted for the annual 2017 NASW Illinois Chapter Social Work Awards.  We are searching for outstanding individuals whose work has supported the social work profession and the people it serves in four award categories: Social Worker of the Year, Lifetime Achievement Award, Public Citizen of the Year, and Emerging Leader.

Enjoy!  And as always, I am looking for ideas for trainings or speakers--feel free to contact me!
