This year will be very special because we'll also be celebrating 100 years of workers' compensation with a special Centennial Gala & Dinner along with the announcement of the inaugural winner of the Sue Ann Head Award. The second evening will feature a silent auction to benefit Kids' Chance.

Who should attend?

Employers, insurance adjusters, self-insurers, third party administrators, safety and human resource managers, plaintiff and defense attorneys, health care providers, mediators, and medical and vocational rehabilitation providers are encouraged to attend to receive valuable information about Tennessee’s workers’ compensation system.

A certificate of attendance will be provided for other professional disciplines.
