Maryland Workers' Compensation Educational Association (MWCEA) Annual Conference

MWCEA is so much more than your typical conference. It's a cornerstone in the industry; the annual gathering of like-minded professionals uniting to exchange ideas, share best practices and learn new ways of doing business from some of the country's largest and most respected industry experts. Our three-day program highlights presentations of MWCEA's latest research findings while drawing upon the diverse perspectives of highly respected workers' compensation experts and policymakers from across the state.

Whether you are managing workers' compensation claims, concerned about adequate care and return to work for injured workers, focused on medical costs and utilization, or just looking for a better understanding of workers' compensation, this conference provides unique and valuable information.

MWCEA is also home to the state's largest workers' compensation educational resource, featuring exhibitors offering claims management software, cost containment solutions, managed care services, medical / pharmaceutical products, RTW services, risk management solutions and more - all under one roof! There's simply no better place to find and compare the products, tools and services available to help you solve your toughest workers' comp and disability management challenges.

This year's conference is highlighted with informative sessions in several aspects of Workers' Comp. Attendees will leave with valuable networking contacts, new insights, and a better understanding of today's competitive environment. Learn about the latest research, key issues and challenges - such as the future of the workforce, the impact of technology, the economic outlook, how the opioid epidemic has affected the labor force, the latest trends in return to work - and review the Commission's new electronic claims processing system, and learn about the inner workings of short-term disability, family leave, ADA and workers' compensation and how they all fit together.

After learning all day, gear up for some networking and socializing! Gather around the Bonfire on the Beach for s'more fun during Monday night's meet & greet. Pack your best circus costume, rock out to the band and be prepared to be amazed at Tuesday night's Big Tent Costume Party - win cash and prizes!
