DWC Opens Registration for 23rd Annual Educational Conference

The California Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC) is pleased to announce that registration for its 23rd annual educational conference is now open. The conference will take place February 25-26, 2016 at the Los Angeles Airport Marriott and March 3-4, 2016 at the Oakland Marriott City Center Hotel.

Attendee, exhibitor, and sponsor registration forms may be downloaded from the conference website.

Conference registration flyers were recently mailed to more than 8,000 names on DWC's mailing list. Registration forms are also available at the conference website and the front counters of the division's district offices throughout California.

This annual event is the largest workers' compensation training in the state and allows claims administrators, attorneys, medical providers, return to work specialists, employers and others to learn firsthand about the most recent developments in the system. Attendees will be interested in learning about the new benefit notices, fee schedules, case law update, and ongoing efforts to implement SB 863.

DWC has applied for continuing educational credits by attorney, claims adjuster, rehabilitation counselor, case manager, disability management, and qualified medical examiner certifying organizations.

Organizations who would like to become sponsors of the DWC conference can do so by going to the website.

The 2015 conference had more than 1,800 attendees and 140 exhibitors, so early registration is encouraged.
