Seventh Annual National Regulators Roundtable

Presented by the Southern Association of Workers’ Compensation Administrators (SAWCA)
 

2:00 – 4:30 pm    
Crystal Ballroom G1                 
Convention Level

The National Regulators Roundtable brings together regulators from throughout the country to discuss challenges, concerns and issues facing individual jurisdictions in the oversight of the ever-changing workers’ compensation industry. Problems faced by one jurisdiction may have already been successfully addressed by another. A developing issue or concern in one state may be an omen for future developments in another and certainly, legislative issues know no boundaries. The National Regulators Roundtable is a forum where regulators share lessons learned and seek timely answers.
