The Foundations Program will offer a comprehensive look at workers’ compensation administrative and regulatory topics at a theoretical and practical level, examining how differences play out across systems.

Participants may include those with management responsibility within workers’ compensation commissions or boards, departments of labor or workforce development, divisions of workers’ compensation, or departments of insurance. 

The Foundations program is available to only jurisdictional agency staff.  If your jurisdiction is not an IAIABC member, please contact the IAIABC to process your registration at a non-member rate.
