The reason is that the workers compensation industry is always evolving – new players, new laws, and new equipment. We recommend everyone who is new to our field attend industry conferences often. This time of year, it’s the National Workers Compensation and Disability Conference® in Las Vegas in November to learn what is new.
At Roundup, we always learn new techniques, meet new vendors, and discover the latest service enhancements. In fact, when I began, I learned this field from the ground up — NWCDC was a part of that education! 20 years ago, in Chicago — my, how time flies.
Eleven Ways to Get the Most Out of the National Conference:
9. Wear comfortable attire. Bring comfortable shoes. I call my black flats my “conference shoes.” You will be on your feet a lot, so be comfortable. The first day, people are a bit more dressed up than the following days. The last day is more casual because people are traveling back home. You will definitely want to dress professionally because some of the people you meet with become lifelong contacts, so making a good impression is important, but you can be comfortable, too. For an ounce of prevention, bring moleskin to protect the areas of your feet most likely to get blisters.
