If you have come to Las Vegas seeking to learn about the latest trends, challenges and proven mitigation strategies in workers’ compensation and disability management, you’ve landed in the right place.

The 24th Annual National Workers’ Compensation and Disability Conference® & Expo promises content delivered by speakers who have tested solutions for today’s toughest challenges or have established their ability to decipher and relate the impact of current trends.

But the conference offers much more.

You will have an opportunity to network with colleagues and leaders representing every profession serving injured workers and companies employing or insuring those workers.

NWCDC is regarded as our industry’s top gathering event. You will have an opportunity to network with colleagues and leaders representing every profession serving injured workers and companies employing or insuring those workers.

You can do this in the expo hall with more than 275 vendors, during session breaks, or at evening receptions and parties.

Welcome to the conference!

I hope you take advantage of every opportunity for work and fun, and find the event as exciting as I believe you will.

As conference chairman responsible for speaker and content selection, I can tell you that many of your peers have put great effort into developing presentations aimed at helping attendees acquire the knowledge necessary to succeed in an increasingly complex workers’ comp world.

Take for example a Program Management track breakout session scheduled for today and featuring speakers form Southwest Airlines, Ernst & Young and Pinnacol Assurance. Titled “Improve Outcomes With a Quality Assurance Program for Managing Service Providers,” the session will provide strategies for selecting and overseeing the vendors servicing workers’ comp programs.

Conversely, vendors will want to attend to hear about the level of service quality some leading-edge companies will demand of you.

But that is just one of the conference’s many learning opportunities. Along with taking advantage of those, I hope you contribute to conversations focused on improving workers’ comp.

Above all, I hope you have a great time while learning and networking!
