October 2022 - East Central District Update
Melissa Box, LCSW, LSOE, LSOTP East Central District Chair
Two Events, Twice the Fun! We ended September with a wonderfully successful virtual training on Self-Care for Social Workers, provided by Genesis Hall, who was an engaging and enthusiastic presenter. Thank you to Genesis and to all our attendees for a great conversation!
Our next event is also our first IN-PERSON event in two years! I am so looking forward to spending some time meeting and getting to know those of you in the East Central District. Please join us for tasty tarts and coffee, a chance to visit, network, and learn about the awesome work being done by social workers across our region. Your drink and a tart of your choice is included in your registration fee! We’ll be at The Tasty Tart in Champaign, IL, on Friday October 14th! THIS WEEK is the last week to sign up, so click here: https://naswil.wufoo.com/forms/zg2ga0p0wsv0gr/ (Registrants will be contacted one week prior to the event for your personal tart and drink orders!)
