Postponement Of 2020 Workers’ Compensation Educational Conference


It is with profound disappointment that the Board of Directors of the Workers’ Compensation Institute (WCI) has decided to postpone this year’s 75th Annual Workers’ Compensation Educational Conference. The new conference dates are August 22 – 25, 2021. This decision was not made lightly, but with great thought and concern for the health and safety of attendees, sponsors, speakers, exhibitors and friends of WCI. Many companies have instituted travel restrictions, and some states still remain under stay at home orders. Additionally, WCI greatly empathizes with the many in our community who have suffered personally and professionally from this virus. With the uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic still present, we have no alternative except to postpone the conference.
