ANNOUNCING: Rethinking Ethics - 2020 NASW-Illinois Chapter Conference
Updated: Jun 24
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 hybrid 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 hybrid structure which allows registrants to select in-person or live virtual attendance. All registrants may switch their participation request to live virtual or in-person free of charge so long as the request is made before November 2, 2020. Please review the conference schedule as not all breakout sessions courses being offered during the breakout sessions will be available for live virtual registrants in a hybrid 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.
ABOUT THE HYBRID CONFERENCE MODEL
This hybrid model will allow both in-person and live virtual attendees to interact with one another via the conference app, explore our Exhibit Hall, and attend educational offerings. Should circumstances require it (including state reopening remaining below Phase 5), the chapter may also quickly pivot to an entirely virtual conference, all breakout sessions will then be offered to all registrants.
