June 2020 - Jane Addams District Update
Patricia Schofield, Jane Addams District Chair
Hello Jane Addams District Members,
Welcome to July 2020. I hope this finds you all well. Welcome to all new members and all renewing members. Thank you for your support because together we keep our chapter strong.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, we deeply regret we had to cancel our March 2020 event, The Social Workers Role in Court: Understanding, Participating, and Avoiding. Many of you expressed your disappointment so, the good news is that our presenter, Jonathan D. Nye, has agreed to present a Zoom Workshop for the district. Jonathan D. Nye is a partner in Nye Law Group, Ltd. He has developed a philosophy of assisting human services providers in avoiding litigation, maintaining confidentiality, and assisting providers in managing their practices. You will receive an email as soon as registration is open.
