Division of Workers’ Compensation accepting nominations for 2013 Carrie Nevans community service awards
Awards will be given as part of the DWC educational conferences
The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) is now accepting nominations for its annual Carrie Nevans community service awards, which will be presented at the 20th annual educational conferences in February and March 2013. This annual community service award began in 2010 and was renamed in memory and honor of Carrie Nevans, the acting administrative director, who passed away in 2011.
“This award is about recognizing and acknowledging those extraordinary individuals outside of DWC whose efforts, often unsung, do so much to benefit the comp system for the betterment of employees and employers,” said Acting Administrative Director Destie Overpeck.
Nominations should be made for those individuals who have made a significant contribution to the betterment of the workers’ compensation community in the highest professional manner. DWC will evaluate the nominations and honor one Southern California recipient in Los Angeles and another Northern California recipient in Oakland during an award ceremony at the educational conference luncheons.
