The 73rd Annual Workers' Compensation Educational Conference and the 30th Annual Safety and Health Conference focus on national workers' compensation and occupational safety and health industries. Particularly as it relates to workers' compensation, it has always been felt that each state, having different laws, had to deal with its own issues separate from other states. No longer is this the case. This national conference has evolved into a gathering of all stakeholders, regardless of jurisdiction or state, to study and be educated on issues of common concern – issues that have no geographical boundaries. Regardless of your interests, your position in these important industries, and your role, this conference is designed to provide something of significance. The unprecedented number of breakouts and the quality of presenters representing states throughout the country truly make this the national event not to be missed.
