August 2013 - West Central District Update

Audrey LeMasters
West Central District Chair


Let’s begin with a big welcome to three new members to the West Central District: Amber Gittings, Eric Hadley-Ives, and Sandra Milliman. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions for our district.

Here is some information about what is currently happening in the NASW Illinois Chapter:

  • 2013 Emerging Leader Awards: The NASW Illinois Chapter is looking to recognize young social workers making a difference in the field. The deadline for all nominations is September 13, 2013. Nominate someone today!
  • Don’t forget the 2013 NASW Illinois Chapter Statewide Conference. The 2013 NASW Illinois Chapter Statewide Conference is now accepting registrants! You can earn up to 19 CEUs in just three days. For more information, go to the conference website:
  • Renewal Licensure Deadline: Don’t forget that this November 30, 2013, is the licensure renewal deadline! For further information about renewing your license, check the ‘Licensure’ page on the NASW Illinois Chapter website:


Have you been wondering about the changes contained in the DSM-V? Wondering how the changes in healthcare may effect your clients or your practice? Need some CEUs before November 30, 2013? Would you like the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with other social workers throughout the state? Consider attending the 2013 NASW Illinois Chapter Statewide Conference and get all of these questions answered! 


I am currently working hard with a team of professionals to plan our mental health forum to be held in March 2014. This will also be our Social Work Month Awards/Celebration event. Our topic will be youth and mental illness. Please forward any suggestions for topics or presenters that you may have to me as soon as possible. I would like to target topics of special interest to social workers within our district.
