Two of workers’ compensation’s best-known experts once again “tell it like it is” in a talk about the state of the market. Jeff Eddinger, Practice Leader and Senior Actuary for the National Council on Compensation Insurance in Boca Raton, Fla.; and Robert P. Hartwig, President of the Insurance Information Institute in New York, N.Y., will be major presenters at the 67th annual Workers’ Compensation Educational Conference August 19 to 23 at the Orlando World Center Marriott.
Along with a “by-the-numbers” analysis of the industry’s financial health and claim trends, these two nationally recognized experts will offer a broad-ranging presentation on the impact of national legislation, state-specific initiatives, worker safety, and emerging opportunities and liabilities. The session will be moderated by Joan Collier, Online Communications Officer for the Workers’ Compensation Institute.
The CEU-accredited session will be presented from 10:00 to 11:00 am on Tuesday, August 21.
