Welcome to the TIPS Workers’ Compensation and Employers’ Liability Committee.
The 2015-2016 Year has begun. We have a wonderful group of dedicated vice chairs and I look forward to working with everyone this year. If you are interested in becoming a vice chair and/or participating in the committee, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration is open for the TIPS Fall Leadership Meeting in Scottsdale, AZ. The meeting will take place from October 14-18, 2015 at the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa. Our Committee will have an in-person meeting on October 17, 2015 at 2:00 pm. Our regularly scheduled conference call will take place on October 19, 2015 and we will recap what took place at the Scottsdale meeting.
We are once again looking for articles for our WC Newsletter. Some general guidelines: feature articles should be between 1,000 – 2,000 words and footnotes and/or endnotes are discouraged; case notes should be short (one paragraph, half a page or at most 500 words are appropriate); and can be something you have published before, as long as you have permission from the other publisher.
The questions to be answered in our 50 State Workers’ Compensation Compendium have been finalized. This is the year the Compendium will be completed. You will be receiving an e-mail from me asking you to complete a few to several questions, depending on the number of members in your state. This is a wonderful way to share your knowledge of workers' compensation with a wide audience with minimal effort.
