AVASW Hosts Networking Reception for VA Social Workers at the National Association of Social Workers Conference


On Thursday June 21st, AVASW President Mandy Kalins and AVASW Past President LeAnn Bruce hosted a Reception at the 2018 NASW National Conference in Washington DC.  The Reception was open to all VA Social Workers attending the NASW conference as well as those stationed at the surrounding VAs. The Reception was attended by over 70 VA Social Work staff.  The event featured the VACO Social Work Leadership Council Committees, the Office of Mental Health and Suicide Prevention, and National Social Work Programs such as Fisher House & Family Hospitality Program, Intimate Partner Violence Assistance Program, Caregiver Support, and Transition Care Management.  Attendees were encouraged to network and mingle throughout the room while playing a Human Bingo game with their fellow social workers.  The two winners of the game were Jennifer Halter and Jennifer Audette.  They are now proud owners of an AVASW polo shirt!
