Workers’ compensation Meeting of the Minds will be Oct. 6

UPDATED to include continuing education credits.

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 Zoom beginning at 7:30 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 6 and registration is now open. (Share the event flyer.)

The conference 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, the Meeting of the Minds webinar will cover the latest changes in vocational recovery, self-insurance processes, language access, vocational recovery, legal updates, and more. L&I Director Joel Sacks and WSLC President Larry Brown will open the day-long webinar. (See the tentative agenda at the Project Help website.)
