December 2021 - Chicago District Update
Michael Mallory, Chicago District Chair
Happy Holidays, Chicago!
I sincerely hope that all of you had a lovely and restorative holiday last week. As we are now underway for the rest of the holiday season, I hope folx are able to set aside time for some much needed self-care!
In preparation for the New Year, I’d like to remind everyone that LCSW renewals are due by 02/29/2022 as well as the CEUs for that renewal period. If you have any questions, I encourage you to check out our NASW Illinois community board for responses from our chapter staff. [NASW Illinois community in MyNASW] For those of you in private practice and maintain your own CAQH provider profiles, I remind all of you to upload a temporary printout of your temporary renewal extension on the IDFPR website’s licensure look-up page.
Additionally, during this upcoming year, my term will be end as Chicago District Chair. I encourage those who are interested in serving on the Board to submit a nomination. For more information see below:
