April 2013 - Calumet District Update

Chasity Wells-Armstrong, MSW, CADC

I would like to extend a warm welcome to all new members of the Calumet District! The Calumet District is comprised of the following counties:  Kankakee, Will, Grundy, and parts of southern Cook.  Please peruse the chapter website (http://www.naswil.org) and see how you can put your membership to use, in addition to exploring opportunities for you to participate in your professional association.

March was a wonderful month for Social Work Month celebrations.

The Calumet District recognized the following awardees during National Social Work Month: Patricia A. Polk, 2013 Public Citizen of the Year; Cini Bretzlaff-Holstein, 2013 Social Worker of the Year; and D. Frank Elam, 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award recipient.

In addition, I organized a community event in the district for Social Work Month. US Representative Bill Foster (IL-11) spoke with a group of social workers during the event at Big Brothers Big Sisters in Joliet. Also Congressman Foster shared remarks I wrote in honor of National Social Work Month that were submitted into the Congressional Record on March 14, 2013. Click the attached link to view the remarks: http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/CREC-2013-03-14/pdf/CREC-2013-03-14-extensions.pdf
