OLYMPIA (Sept. 15, 2014) — Every two years, union members and others interested in Washington’s workers’ compensation system gather to hear from expert speakers and presenters about the changes and policy issues affecting the safety net for injured workers. The  2014 “Meeting of the Minds” Conference, sponsored by the Project Help program, will be Oct. 9-10 at the Red Lion Hotel Olympia and participants can earn 10 self-insured qualified continuing education credits!


Presented by the Washington State Labor Council and the state Department of Labor and Industries (L&I), this conference features a wide variety of workshops and topics geared for all levels of understanding and interest. Participants will hear from representatives of Project Help, L&I, the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals, and others about changes in the ever-evolving workers’ compensation system. The conference should appeal to union representatives, rank-and-file workers, employers and others affected by the workers’ compensation system. (See the tentative agenda.)
