THE CONFERENCE IS ON!

 

The NASW-MA Chapter Annual School Social Work Conference, “Fear and Safety in Schools: The Role of Mental Health Staff” will be held AS SCHEDULED, on Friday, November 16, from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. As hardy New Englanders, we are not going to let a little snow get in the way of providing you with an excellent learning and networking opportunity.

 

HOWEVER, depending on where you live, and what roads you will be taking, please be sure to leave yourself extra time for travel. I am sure the major highways and major local roads will be cleared and salted, but back roads and side streets may take longer for towns’ and cities’ maintenance departments to plow. Holy Cross has assured me they will be well-plowed and shoveled on their grounds and parking lots.

 

Please let your friends and colleagues, who did not pre-register, know that the conference is on and they can register at the door.
