OUR SOCIETY’S ROLE IN LEGISLATION & ADVOCACY
Sunday, October 27, 2019, 11:30 am-3:00 pm
Maggiano’s Tyson’s Galleria
2001 International Drive | McLean, Virginia 22102
The news can be overwhelming: mass shootings, family separations at the Mexican border, DHHS rollback of protections against discrimination, and the list goes on. Then there are the insurance companies reluctant to cover psychotherapy treatments of any depth, the Medicare audits, and the need to keep up with state legislation and the Board of Social Work regulation changes. Our mission is to protect our clinical practice and to work to ensure Americans’ access to affordable quality mental health care. And beyond? Watching the news, our social work values remind us to ask: What can we do as individuals to strengthen our voice? What can we do together?
Join us for a stimulating discussion with our Virginia lobbyist Sue Rowland, our Maryland lobbyist, Pam Metz Kasemeyer, our DC co-chair of L&A, Margot Aronson, and special guest, Laura Groshong, CSWA Director of Policy and Practice. Adding to the perspectives will be Judy Gallant, Judy Ratliff, Adele Natter – and YOU!
Please note: The luncheon is a free member benefit, but advanced registration is required. Chicken piccata, eggplant parmesan and a vegetarian lasagne will be offered for our main course. If a vegan main dish is requested please note this on your registration and the restaurant will accommodate this.
Our Society needs YOU to help us advocate and impact legislators in many different ways, or our messages simply will not get out.
