Division of Workers' Compensation opens registration for its 18th annual educational conference

The California Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) is delighted to announce that registration for its 18th annual educational conference is now open.  The conference will take place Feb. 24-25, 2011 at the Los Angeles Sheraton Gateway Hotel and Feb. 28-Mar. 1, 2011 at the Oakland Marriott City Center Hotel.

Attendee, exhibitor, and sponsor registration forms may be downloaded from the conference Web site at www.dwc.ca.gov. In the left navigation pane, under “I want to,” click on “learn about the DWC 18th annual educational conference.”

Organizations who would like to support the DWC conference can become 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 website 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.
