The Workers' Compensation Alliance will host its first annual "Town Hall Meeting" in Manhattan on Thursday, September 30, 2010. The Town Hall will provide an opportunity for members of the bar to meet with the senior staff of the Workers' Compensation Board, including the Chairman, the Executive Director, the Director of Policy, and the General Counsel for a discussion about current administrative and regulatory topics.
The meeting will cover current administrative topics including the Medical Treatment Guidelines, the Board's procedure in cases involving schedule loss of use, the proposed panel on attorney's fees, and other matters of interest and concern to practitioners. A lively discussion between the speakers and the attendees in an informal setting is anticipated. There will be an open bar and hors d'oeuvres at a cocktail party for WCA members before the Town Hall Meeting. The cost of the cocktail party, which will begin at 4:00 PM, is $125 (make checks payable to "Workers' Compensation Alliance). The Town Hall Meeting will commence at 5:00 P.M..
All are invited to attend and to participate in this event, which will provide food for thought and discussion at the IWBA Fall Meeting immediately following on October 1st and 2nd in Albany.
