The IAIABC Convention gathers workers’ compensation leaders for educational programming and roundtables on major policy, regulatory, and administrative issues. Attendees will hear from subject matter experts, policymakers, and regulatory administrators on strategies, best practices, and trends in workers’ compensation industry. A cornerstone of the IAIABC Convention is the opportunity for the regulatory and private sector communities to actively discuss challenges and issues and work toward finding solutions and understanding.

The Forum

The IAIABC Forum program is centered around the work of the IAIABC committees. IAIABC committees actively develop resources that provide valuable insights, data reporting standards, and information regarding workers’ compensation regulation, policy, and administration. At The Forum, regulators and private sector leaders sit at the same table in committee meetings and seminars, generating new ideas and strategies side by side.

The Forum takes place in the spring every year. Join the IAIABC for The Forum in the future:
