The first class of Provisionals (when still the Welfare League of Phoenix) consisted of seven members! The training Committee began their training with a class on parliamentary procedures and the recommended reading (as suggested by AJLA, now AJLI) was “How a Social Worker Views Her Community” by the Russell Sage Foundation. The League sponsored a three day seminar to members and interested community agencies on the theory and application of social casework. The first Placement Committee was in charge of interviewing all members and finding their strengths and placing them accordingly. This was followed up with a telephone interview to determine her satisfaction.
