Region A Report

By Shelly Kalmer, MSW, ACSW

Happy Social Work Month! And a very happy 40th anniversary to the California Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers! Region A will be celebrating the month in a variety of ways in each of the units so stay tuned for announcements on our Facebook page, in the CalSwift notices and in your email inbox.

We look forward to seeing you at one of the events this month and, in the meanwhile, be sure to take some time each day to congratulate yourself for choosing a challenging, rewarding and life-changing profession. Treat yourself to something special. You deserve it.
