October 2017 - Northeastern District Update

Lynn Zakeri

HI Northeastern District members! I have been enjoying my new role on the NASW-Illinois Chapter Board of Directors and have been busy planning CEU events—I am really excited about these events this November. Whether you have your CEU requirements or not, these are some pretty talented speakers, and wherever your stomping grounds are in the district, perhaps one of these is convenient for you.

On November 10, there are two different events. One is in Gurnee (Lake County), and it is almost full so register soon. Mark Ishaug is a fantastic speaker (his Ted Talk is powerful), and I think many of us, regardless of our work environment, will relate and appreciate his philosophy of "Leading with Love." The other event that day is in Woodstock (McHenry County) where the knowledgable Amber and Elizabeth will expand on their NASW conference talk about trauma, early childhood, and strategies. Then, the following week on 11/17, I am thrilled to hear a local mother present on her powerful research and personal story about heroin in our North Shore. This will be an event in Skokie (Cook). I will be in Gurnee and Skokie and look forward to meeting as many of you that can attend. Registration information is below. I hope some of you can make it to our conference. Have a wonderful October.  Lynn
