IAIABC NextGen is now taking nominations for its 2020 Initiative!
IAIABC NextGen launched in 2017 as a way to recognize talented young professionals who are having a positive impact on workers' compensation, making a difference within their organizations and leading the industry into the future. As the workers' compensation industry ages and workplaces change through technology and globalization, there is no better time to support the development of the leaders of today and tomorrow.
IAIABC NextGen has recognized 26 individuals for their contributions to the industry, and in 2020, the IAIABC looks forward to seeing new leaders emerge.
Individuals are nominated by their peers or colleagues in the workers’ compensation industry. Nominators should provide as much detailed information as possible regarding the nominee’s accomplishments, projects, and contributions to their organization and/or the workers’ compensation industry. This is necessary for the selection committee to make an informed decision.
Nominations must be made by someone other than the nominee (cannot self-nominate).
Nominators and nominees do not need to work for the same organization.
Nominees do not need to work for an IAIABC member organization.
IAIABC NextGen recipients will be selected based on the following criteria:
Recipient is making a substantial and positive impact on their organization and/or the workers’ compensation industry through their work. Nominators are asked to provide both objective and subjective measures and rationale for their nomination.
Recipient has been highly engaged in workers’ compensation policy, innovation, project or program development, and/or administration. Nominators are asked to provide specific examples/descriptions of their project work, programs supported and/or implemented, etc.
Employed in the workers’ compensation industry.
Age 39 or under as of December 31, 2020.

To make comparisons between jurisdictional and industry nominees more balanced and equitable, nominees will fall into one of two categories:
Jurisdiction: nominee works for a governmental organization (state, province, country) that regulates and/or administers their jurisdiction’s workers’ compensation laws.
Private Sector Industry: nominee works for a non-governmental organization that does business in the workers’ compensation industry.
Invited to the IAIABC’s 106th Convention, September 21-24, 2020 in Denver, Colorado. Registration fee will be waived, and recipients will be asked to participate in a special session and networking event at the Convention.
