Division of Workers' Compensation opens registration for its 19th annual educational conference

The California Division of Workers’ Compensation, (DWC) is very pleased to announce that registration for its 19th annual educational conference is now open. The conference will take place Feb. 23-24, 2012 at the Los Angeles Sheraton Gateway Hotel and March 5-6, 2012 at the Oakland Marriott City Center Hotel.

Attendee, exhibitor, and sponsor registration forms may be downloaded from the DWC educational conference Web page.

Registrants will receive a postcard confirming their registration once received. Registration flyers were recently mailed to the more than 8,000 names on our conference 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 opioids in workers’ compensation and Ogilvie/Blackledge as well as ongoing DWC programs.

The conference is applying for continuing educational credits by attorney, claims adjuster, rehabilitation counselor, case manager, disability management, and qualified medical examiner certifying organizations.

Organizations who would like to become sponsors of the DWC conference can do so by going to the Web site above.

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