Join CMSA AZ for our first CEU class and virtual networking opportunity of 2021. We'll kick off the meeting with a fun, interactive Mixology Class presented by Liquid Caterers at 5:30p. Note: Stay tuned for details about the visual "mixers" we'll be using. Immediately following the mixology demo, we'll delve into an incredibly important presentation about human trafficking. This 2.0 CEU virtual presentation will address Arizona's human trafficking problem in an effort to help case managers better understand the challenges faced by survivors. Topics will include:

  • Legislation/government action
  • Community risk factors
  • Recovery/restoration of survivor efforts
  • Best practices from ASU, the McCain Foundation
  • Local case studies including experiences with this population
