September 2016 - West Central District Update

Nancy Egger, LCSW

Hello West Central District! I hope this finds you all well and happy! We had a wonderful event last week with Carol Hennon from the Center For Prevention of Abuse, and learned about the dynamics of abuse as well as how our local community is rising to meet the needs in light of the current fiscal strains. I am in process of arranging our next training, so watch for for updates!  As always, feel free to contact me with ideas or suggestions for trainings or speakers.

The early bird deadline for this year's conference, The Business of Social Work, has been extended to September 6!  Save $25 on registration! ​The Business of Social Work: 2016 NASW Illinois ​Chapter ​Conference is ​taking place this year on Thursday, October 20, 2016, at the Hilton Lisle.

Thanks, Governor Rauner--our LCSW Medicaid bill is now law! Late Friday Governor Bruce Rauner signed Senate Bill 2332, now Public Act 099-0621. The NASW Illinois Chapter will continue to be involved as we begin our advocacy efforts regarding the rulemaking process. If you haven't already, stay involved by subscribing to the NASW Illinois Chapter Action Alerts. Read more about the bill here

Thank you to all who contacted their local legislators to get this important piece of legislation passed!
