Greetings, Coastal Bend Social Workers!
March is Social Work Month and our theme for this year is All People Matter.
Here is a link to NASW talking points if you wish to use them for your media appearances: http://www.socialworkers.org/pressroom/swmonth/
As local social workers, you might also wish to include information on your social work practice area, to let the public know more about what social workers do.
Jump start Social Work Month by joining local social workers for a Jump Start Social Work Month Mixer, generously sponsored by Altus Hospice, at B & J Pizza in Corpus Christi on February 27th from 6pm to 8pm!
Please make sure that your e-mail address is current with NASW/Texas so that you are getting messages from the listserv. There will be many opportunities to help with Social Work Month! For more information, please contact Mariah Boone at 361-548-3391.
For more information about branch events, please email Joel Carr, Branch Chair.
