Message from the IWCI President

June 18, 2015

The next major event for IWCI is the upcoming Golf Outing. The theme for the 23rd Annual IWCI Golf Outing is Toga Party. The Golf Outing will be held at Ironwood Golf Club in Fishers on Friday, June 26, 2015. Registration for golfers begins at 9:00AM EST with a shotgun start at 11:00AM.

Important information for Attorneys – The Indiana Commission for Continuing Legal Education has approved the upcoming IWCI Annual Seminar for 5.5 General CE credits and .8 for Ethics and .8 for NLS. The approval for Case Managers and Indiana Adjusters is pending approval, but should be approved shortly.

The upcoming 25th IWCI Seminar will be held at the Marriott East. The event promises to be educational and enjoyable. We have assembled a variety of individual seminars related to worker's compensation. In addition to the topics I listed in my last newsletter, the following presentations are scheduled:

  • The role for hip arthroscopy in the injured worker
  • Treatment of concussion in the workplace
  • Updates on worker's compensation in Indiana
  • Epic Change: The Evolution of the Legal Profession
  • Compliance with the Indiana Worker's Compensation Act
  • Indiana's Traumatic Brain Injury Model System and Outcome Measurement Projects: What they mean for your work comp patients
  • Panel -- What is the role of the Nurse Case Manager?
  • Practices and problems during the completion of the board-appointed IME

The keynote address on Friday will be given by Carl Van. His topic this year is "Real-life time management for the worker's compensation claims professional." If you heard Carl last year, you will want to make sure others hear him this year. He is an excellent and engaging speaker.

We also hope you will plan to attend the cocktail event Thursday evening and participate in the silent auction benefitting Kid's Chance on Friday. There is a great deal happening over the next couple of months with IWCI. We hope that you will get registered for the upcoming events. Early bird registration for the August seminar ends on June 30. A block of rooms has been reserved under IWCI for $109, plus taxes. If you are a vendor and plan to exhibit for this event, or wanting to see more information about sponsoring and registering for this event, go to the event information page for more details.
