Among ISCSW’s most important activities are the Networking Events that we hold quarterly in locations throughout Chicagoland. Our Board has worked hard to develop a structure and format for the networking events that provides our members with an enjoyable and engaging experience. Our most recent events have been held in the homes of our board members. The board provides delicious food and drinks, and there is plenty of time for socializing with friends and networking with colleagues. Each event has a clinically relevant theme, and for those that are interested, we hold a discussion of an article or current newsworthy event or legislation.
Recent topics have included: Preserving our humanity in the face of managed care, comparing experiences using the DSM 5, and the implications of the Affordable Healthcare Act for clinical social work. The events are free and open to our members as well as the entire clinical social work community. We hope you will join us for our next networking event! Specific times and dates will be announced on our website, posted on our Facebook and LinkedIn pages, and sent out via email to our members.
