Did You Know...?
One of the many benefits to being a NASW member is to have a method to advocate for yourself and your clients through a larger organization. The NASW is actively advocating on both a local and national level. To read more, go to http://www.naswil.org and hit the link at the top of the page titled "Advocacy". Here you can read more about legislation that is relevant to the work that social workers are doing. There are also easy methods provided so that you can get involved.
This Month's Challenge
Believe it or not, we are approaching the end of 2012. I want to begin planning for 2013. There are a few things to consider. Licensing renewal will be due in 2013. If you have ideas for an ethics training you would like to attend, please let me know. Do you have any ideas about district events you would like to attend? What would you like to see us do differently in the district? I would like to hear from you. Please feel free to e-mail me with any ideas you have.
