REGION A – San Francisco, Marin, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake, Humboldt, Del Norte

Region A Report

By Shelly Kalmer, MSW, ACSW

September already! This is an exciting time of the year for so many people—but most especially for those of you continuing in your social work studies in the social work programs in Region A and throughout the state. Region A is home to Humboldt State, San Francisco State, and the CSU Long Beach Distance Ed program at Sonoma State. But we also know that there are residents of Region A who attend schools outside the region including Cal State East Bay, UC Berkeley, San Jose State, the on-line program offered through USC and so many more. In addition to the programs offered at these high quality schools, Region A offers ongoing continuing education opportunities for students, recent graduates and seasoned professionals.

Stay tuned to your email boxes, Facebook notices, CalSwift, and this publication to learn about the many upcoming CEU events in Region A and other regions in the state. Be sure we have your current email by sending an email to us at the addresses listed with our names; like us on Facebook at; and maintain your membership with your professional association—the NASW.
