August 2019 - East Central District Update
Mary Garrison, LCSW, ACSW
East Central District Chair
Hello and happy August to all! Our summer is going by quickly so be sure to take advantage of the time we have left – I just saw Halloween decorations out so the end of summer is near – ugh!
Don’t forget that the 2019 NASW-Illinois Chapter Statewide Conference is coming up – see details and information link below – this is going to be a great event and I hope you will consider attending!
The NASW-Illinois Chapter website is currently in a transition period, so it looks a bit different as the chapter prepares to have a final version that is in line with the NASW National website. Please check it out and, as always, find valuable information for CEU events (many free for members) as well as essential information about the profession and our state!
I will continue to seek suggestions for workshops and presentations you would like to have in our district. Please send any suggestions to me at: ECentral.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Below are upcoming events in our district.
