Welcome to the TIPS Workers’ Compensation and Employers’ Liability Committee.
Our next in-person meeting will be at the ABA Midyear meeting (February 5-8, 2015 at the Hilton of the Americas). We will be joined for dinner at the ABA Midyear Meeting by the Insurance Regulation and Staff Counsel Committees. If you are coming to the meeting or live in the area, please join us for dinner.
We recently published a great Fall Newsletter. The due dates for submission of articles for future newsletters are January 30, 2015, April 17, 2015 and June 17, 2015. Please submit your articles for the newsletter directly to Lindsey Mills (email@example.com).
Our Committee will again co-sponsor the Mid-Winter Seminar and Conference with Labor and Employment Law’s Workers’ Compensation Committee. The conference will take place March19-21, 2015 in Naples, FL. There is a special group rate at the Naples Grande Beach Resort of $285 (single or double occupancy). The reservation deadline for the group rate is Wednesday, February 18, 2015. The registration fee is $395 for Section of Labor and Employment Law and Tort, Trial and Insurance Practice Section members, $495 for ABA members, $595 for non-members, $250 for government agency attendees, and $175 for guests. Those who can only attend one day of the seminar, may register only for that day at a rate of $125. Registration is now open - www.americanbar.org/groups/labor_law/committees/wccom/midwinter.html
We are looking forward to seeing you at the conference and once again will be raising money for Kids Chance of America.
It is hard for me to believe that we are almost half-way through the 2014-2015 ABA year. Planning for the 2015-2016 year is already underway. If there are any ideas or suggestions you have, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wishing you the happiest of holidays.
