December 2020 - East Central District Update
Mary Garrison, LCSW, ACSW East Central District Chair
Hello East Central District Members!
I hope this update finds you all hanging in there. I can imagine your Thanksgiving holiday was like no other you have ever experienced— 2020 keeps “delivering” the challenges, but let’s keep our hope we can get through this! As we navigate COVID-19, the NASW-Illinois Chapter continues to deliver on information and events as we end this year (and a lot of planning for 2021!). Please check out the website for all kinds of CEU opportunities.
Welcome to our newest members and to those that have renewed your membership – we are so glad you are a part of the NASW-Illinois Chapter family. 😊
