Division of Workers' Compensation opens registration for its 17th annual educational conference

The California Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) is pleased to announce that registration for its 17th annual educational conference is now open. The conference will take place Feb. 25-26, 2010 at the Los Angeles Sheraton Gateway Hotel and March 1-2, 2010 at the Oakland Marriott City Center Hotel.

Attendee, exhibitor, and sponsor registration forms may be downloaded from the conference Web site at http://www.dir.ca.gov/DWC/educonf17/DWC_EducationalConference.html.

Organizations who would like to support our conference can, for the first time, be sponsors by going to the Web site above.

Conference updates, including copies of handout material, the conference program, and conference agenda, will also be posted on the site. Registrants will receive a postcard confirmation once their registration form is received. Registration flyers were mailed last week to the names on our mailing list. Registration forms are also available at the conference Web site and the front counters of the 24 DWC district offices in the state. 

This annual event is the largest workers’ compensation training in the state and allows claims administrators, attorneys, medical providers, return to work specialists, employers and others to learn firsthand about the most recent developments in the system – such as Electronic Adjudication Management System – as well as ongoing DWC programs. The conference is applying for certification for continuing educational credits by attorney, rehabilitation counselor, case manager, disability management, qualified medical examiner, and claims adjuster organizations. 

We expect 800 registrants and 50 exhibitors at each location, so DWC encourages attendees and exhibitors to register early.
