March 2022 - East Central District Update
Melissa Box, LCSW, LSOE, LSOTP East Central District Chair
Upcoming Networking Event 3/30/22
I am excited to tell you about a networking event we have planned for the end of March! This one-hour virtual event features a panel discussion designed to allow social workers who work in different sectors an opportunity to discuss their practice, their greatest challenges and successes, how their work has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and how they picture the future of their practice. Join this great opportunity to network with other social workers in our district, as well as learn about the wide variety of ways to work as a social worker in Illinois! Featuring social workers practicing in libraries, medical settings, child welfare, higher education, and schools.
Panelists will include (although are subject to change) Mary Garrison, Candy Gray, Jessica Hill, Hillary Tanner.
