Message from the IWCI President

October 28, 2015

As we officially enter the Holiday season, we are looking forward to some excellent opportunities for education and fun. On November 5, Dr. Sebastian Peers of RECONSTRUCTIVE HAND TO SHOULDER OF INDIANA will present on shoulder injuries, to include the importance of obtaining an accurate initial diagnosis, shoulder maladies in general, and treatment options that can ensure the best possible functional outcome. Shoulder injuries can be one of the most debilitating and costly injuries a worker can experience. Understanding potential pitfalls and how to avoid them can be crucial if optimal medical, functional, and vocational outcomes are to be obtained.

On December 3rd, the Indianapolis Chapter will celebrate our Holiday Party at the Columbia Club in downtown Indianapolis. Festivities start at 6:00 PM. This is an event you won't want to miss, as downtown Indy is beautiful this time of year and all your professional friends and colleagues will be enjoying each other's company over excellent food and drinks. Be sure to register as soon as possible.
The IWCI board has been working very hard to get a jump on next year's educational opportunities. We have our dates locked in and will announce all presentations in January 2016.

To help us in these ambitious endeavors, the Board has decided to add one to two board members to the Indianapolis Chapter Board. If you want to be considered for a position on the IWCI Indianapolis Board, you can submit an online application by clicking on the About Us tab on our Home Page and then clicking on the Board Application tab. The board will review all applications and announce our selection(s) in January 2016.

As always, we value your feedback and suggestions, so please do not hesitate to let us know how we can serve you better. Your input and participation are vital to our continued success.

Thank you for your continued support of the IWCI. I'll look forward to seeing you on November 5th.

Vernon Poland
President, IWCI

Why Join IWCI?

It's a fair question--why should you join IWCI?  We strive to add value to your membership by creating opportunities for networking, education, and access to your customers, vendors, and colleagues. Our membership benefits are soon getting even better as we begin implementation of our new online membership system. 

In addition to allowing you to manage your membership information and renewals, the system will allow you exclusive members-only access to the complete membership database, which we believe will be an invaluable tool for IWCI members.

And of course there is the annual meeting, golf outing, holiday party, monthly luncheons (discounted to members)... and so much more! If you are connected to the Workers' Comp industry in Indiana, you'll find no better resource than IWCI.  Join us won't you?
