Updated: Aug 17, 2020

This year we're talking ethics!


2020 NASW-Illinois Chapter Hybrid Conference 

Thursday, November 19, 2020

Hilton Lisle, Lisle, IL

This year’s Rethinking Ethics: 2020 NASW-Illinois Chapter Conference will be taking place on Thursday, November 19, 2020, in a new virtual format*. Meet with other social work professionals from around the state to earn up to 6 CEUs, including licensure requirements for ethics and trainings on sexual harassment prevention and mandated reporting. With more than 9 trainings and 10 speakers, the Rethinking Ethics conference will connect you to the newest trends, innovations, and practices to strengthen and improve your ethical muscle when working with clients. And with our workshops qualifying for LSWs, LCSWs, PELs, LPCs, LCPCs, LMFTs, RNs, LPNs, APNs, LCPs, and some ICB credentials**, there’s no reason not to attend!

*Due to the uncertainty of in-person events in Illinois in the fall (including uncertainty surrounding when Illinois will move into Phase 5 of reopening), this year's conference will utilize a new virtual structure.

**This conference is currently applying for the following ICB credentials: Counselor I or II, Preventionist I or II, CARS I or II, MISA I or II or III, PCGC II, CCJP II, CAAP I or II, CRSS I or II, CRSS E, GCE, MAATP I or II, RDDP, and CFPP I or II.
