EOI - Action for Social Justice Practice Group Convenor

Currently, our Action for Social Justice Practice Group is suspended until a new Convenor for the group is appointed.  The group meet monthly on every second Tuesday and are held at the Branch Office or other venues as decided upon by the members. 

We are calling for any Expressions of Interest for a qualified social worker to be the new Convenor of the group so it can continue on.  You must also be a current financial member of the AASW.     

If you are interested in applying, please email the branch office registering your interest.  Please also contact the branch office if you have any further questions you would like to ask about the role.


Mackay Social Workers Gathering

No event scheduled for December.

Gatherings will recommence in 2018, with notice placed in the newsletter. 

The Mackay Social Workers had a fabulous time at their recent Xmas Dinner this month, organised by the wonderful Sandy McCristal :)  26 people attended from all over Mackay and the Whitsundays.  From all reports, it was a huge success and everybody thoroughly enjoyed the evening!
