The IWCI 25th Annual Seminar is still three months away. However, early bird registration is now open for the upcoming meeting. We have a packed program of presentations related to worker's compensation in Indiana.
We have an important announcement for sponsors of the Annual Seminar. The pricing for sponsorships and vendor spaces will remain the same. All sponsorships will "go live" on May 26th. There will be opportunities to sponsor the Friday luncheon, tote bags for the event, the Thursday cocktail party, registration table, and the keynote speaker. We will once again hold a Silent Auction to benefit Kid's Chance. The IWCI has been a long time sponsor of Kid's Chance. We hope you will come prepared to select some items for this great cause.
The IWCI May meeting on Friday May 8 at the Dallara Indycar Factory was a wonderful event. Thank you to CDI for sponsoring the event, tours, and wonderful afternoon. The afternoon in Speedway also included the opportunity to mingle and network. Dr. Scheid, OrthoIndy, who also works at IMS, kept us intrigued with his presentation and observations about safety and injuries at the track. I think most of us walked away from the presentation with a whole new perspective on those issues.
We are hoping to try something like this again next year. As you can tell at this point, we have used the first part of 2015 to try different types of events for our monthly meetings. I have appreciated the feedback from the membership and the interest from many in having us continue to look for similar events throughout the year. Finally, remember to get signed up for the Golf Outing. This event is June 26th. The theme this year is "Toga Party." Anybody else recalling their favorite Animal House scene right now? See you at the golf outing.
