Greetings from sunny Orlando, FL, home of DRI's 2nd annual National Workers' Comp Review! If you haven't heard, DRI is conducting its seminar in conjunction with the 64th annual Workers' Compensation Educational Conference. Just waded through a packed lobby full of adjusters, vendors, and many familiar DRI faces from across the country. About to freshen up before the President's cocktail meet & greet. The speakers for our two day seminar met a little earlier, and everyone is looking forward to the kickoff tomorrow morning. Emmitt Smith, of Dallas Cowboy fame is the guest keynote speaker tomorrow. He's followed by the DRI speakers addressing such topics as keeping minor injuries from transforming into catastrophic claims; breaking the cycle on mental illness claims; and a panel of industry experts explaining the dynamics of claims handling and litigation in challenging economic times. You can't tell the economy's down by looking at the number of folks in the lobby!
As the seminar subcommittee vice-chair, I'll be updating this blog periodically, along with Steve Tipton. Hope you check back regularly as we fill you in on what you've missed down here. Next year, please plan to join us!
