June 2017 - Three Rivers District Update

Deborah Perry, LCSW
Three Rivers District Chair

Hello, Three Rivers District Social Workers! As I type this, I feel the adrenalin pumping because I'm emotional about this being my last update to you. I have enjoyed my work as district chair and have grown a great deal professionally through the events and interactions during the past three years. I want to thank everyone I've worked with in this capacity. In addition to the wonderful social workers I've had the opportunity to get to know better, I want to express my gratitude to our Executive Director, Joel Rubin and the rest of the staff in the chapter office. They have provided the tools and support for me to plan and host many worthwhile training and networking events during the past three years. It's been a great experience and I encourage you to get involved in this organization through serving on a committee. There are many great ways to become active in our professional organization. You won’t be sorry you did and you’ll grow from the experience.

I wanted my last district event to provide as much support and training as possible on a very worthwhile, timely topic. I'm so excited about the event coming up this Friday, June 2. Immigration Today: Cultural and Ethical Considerations will provide the CEUs you need to complete the licensing requirement for cultural competence and ethics. The event is FULL and there is a waiting list.

Here is the day's schedule:
8:30 a.m. Registration and Breakfast
9:00 a.m.-Noon Cultural Competency Presentation (3 Cultural Competency CEUs) 
Noon-1:00 p.m. Lunch (Salad and potato bar)
1:00-4:00 p.m. Ethics Presentation (3 Ethics CEUs) 

Hilton Garden Inn

Welcome to the New District Chair!

I leave Three Rivers District in the very capable hands of Mary Abbott, LCSW. She holds a wealth of experience and knowledge and will do an excellent job as your new district chair. I look forward to getting to know her in the next few months before my move to Wisconsin, as I attend district events. Please join me in welcoming Mary Abbott!!
