Kids’ Chance Is an Amazing Way for Workers’ Comp to Give Back. Take It from NCCI’s Mark Mileusnic
I first got involved with Kids’ Chance through the golf tournament that the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) hosts as part of our larger Annual Issues Symposium.
The AIS event is a huge draw for industry professionals, and we recognized the benefit of giving Kids’ Chance more visibility at the event, as well as the opportunity to raise additional money on their behalf.
NCCI is a Kids’ Chance of America national partner, and I am happy to sit on the KCOA advisory board while other NCCI colleagues sit on the KCOA BOD and on individual Kids’ Chance state BODs.
I’m proud to say that the NCCI has supported Kids’ Chance at both the state and national levels since 2004.
We have a great team of people from across our organization engaged with Kids’ Chance and contributing from their own areas of expertise.
For example, this past year, we put together holiday care packages for Kids’ Chance of Florida’s scholarship recipients.
It was a great opportunity for the whole company to get involved as Florida is our home state. The care packages were ‘finals’ themed to help get the kids through their final exams before they went on winter break.
At NCCI, we have a mission to help foster a healthy workers’ compensation system and when we look at Kids’ Chance, we see a charity that is probably the most aligned with the workers’ compensation industry.
We were also able to support Kids’ Chance through one of our executive leadership development programs.
As part of this program, executives from NCCI undertook various community service projects, and one of the teams decided to dedicate their efforts to Kids’ Chance.
Their project produced recommendations on how to increase the pipeline of eligible applicants for Kids’ Chance scholarships.
At NCCI, we have a mission to help foster a healthy workers’ compensation system, and when we look at Kids’ Chance, we see a charity that is probably the most aligned with the workers’ compensation industry.
It’s a natural fit for us and frankly, for any company in our industry. Supporting the educational aspirations of the children of injured workers can make such a difference in their lives and in our communities.
I encourage all workers’ comp professionals to take the opportunity to grow your engagement with Kids’ Chance, which you can do by reaching out to Kids’ Chance of America or by getting in touch with the Kids’ Chance in your state. &
Kids’ Chance is the official charity partner of National Comp, the National Workers’ Compensation and Disability Conference.
