February 2020 - Northeastern District Update
Lynn Zakeri, Northeastern District Chair
It was a great event last month, and so many of you were in attendance. Thank you for all your kind feedback, for the venue, the presentation, the organization—it all goes a long way.
We will have an event on March 6, 2020, at Curt’s Café again, where we have been many times. We will follow our typical format: network about a half an hour, then have a one-hour presentation by one of my longest-known colleagues, Gary Hill (founder of North Shore Solutions). The title will be, “The Loneliness Epidemic: How social media and todays parenting styles effect attachment and connection among our adolescents and young adults.”
Our numbers are growing—most recently, our region is represented by more than 1,300 of us! We welcome Ryan Graff to our Northeastern membership this month. Welcome Ryan!
Other dates to be aware of are: Advocacy Day 04/02. More info is here: https://naswil.wufoo.com/forms/46000-advocacy-day-040220/
And of course, Social Work Month coming up in March! More info is here: https://www.naswil.org/post/social-work-month-2020
Hoping to see many of you soon and let’s hope for more sunshine this month than last.
