May 2019 - Jane Addams District Update
Happy Spring and welcome to our new members: AJ Reed, Michelle Ponce, Michelle Johnson, Mary Ellyn Makulec, Jessica Hobart, so happy to have you join us. If you have questions or requests please feel free to contact me. AJ has already contacted me to let me know how anxious he is to help, and I so appreciate him doing so.
A big thank you to Jerry Ciffone for his outstanding presentation on "Helping students/clients after a school/workplace shooting or suicide." This presentation was very well presented and the participant response was extremely positive. Thank you Jerry and Thanks to North Western Medical Kishwaukee Hospital for hosting the event and providing breakfast.
In the director's "From the Pen," Joel reminds us that this is a license renewal year, and as May begins we have 7 months until renewal. Remember to mark you calendars for the 2019 NASW-Illinois Chapter Statewide Conference on Tuesday, November 5th through Thursday, November 7th at The Westin North Shore in Wheeling, IL. More information will be posted monthly. In the Jane Addams District we are in the process of putting together another workshop in June. Watch your e-mail as more information will be coming your way.
Do you know a social worker who has continually supported and promoted the social work profession and the people it serves? Nominations are being accepted for the 2019 Social Work Awards.
May this spring bring you bright skies and sunny days. Until next time.
