Meeting of the Minds webinar on workers’ compensation is Oct. 8

Every two years, union members and others interested in Washington’s workers’ compensation system gather for the Meeting of the Minds conference, sponsored by the Project Help program, to hear from expert speakers and presenters about the changes and policy issues affecting the safety net for injured workers. This year’s conference will be held via webinar beginning at 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 8 and registration is now open.

Presented by the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO (WSLC) and the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries (L&I), this webinar features industry professionals sharing a wide variety of high-level topics geared for all points of understanding and interest. It should appeal to union representatives, rank-and-file workers, employers and others affected by the workers’ compensation system. This year, under the theme “Changes, Challenges and Opportunity,” the Meeting of the Minds webinar will cover the latest changes in vocational recovery, self-insurance processes, pension adjudication, legal updates, COVID-19, and more. L&I Director Joel Sacks and WSLC President Larry Brown will open the day-long webinar.

The 2020 Meeting of the Minds webinar is also a great opportunity to earn legal, vocational & self-insurance continuing education credits: MCLE (3 legal, 5 other), CRCC (8 hours), CRC (8 hours, pending), and Self-Insurance CEUs (pending).

The registration fee is $97 and you can sign up now to reserve your spot and attend.
