2017 CWCDAA President
Letter from the President
As the 2017 President, I am thankful to have the opportunity to build on the great foundation we have at the California Workers' Compensation Defense Attorneys’ Association.
In 1979, members of the workers’ compensation defense bar came together to organize an association founded with the goal of promoting the administration of justice within the workers’ compensation system, providing for the exchange of information, and continuing education of its members, employers, insurance carriers, and the general public about the laws affecting workers’ compensation practice. It is my hope for 2017 we continue our focus on those goals. Our purpose remains the same and is as relevant today as it was more than 34 years ago.
I am honored to follow in the footsteps of the founding leaders of this organization who had the foresight to recognize issues that were as relevant then as they are now to the practice of workers’ compensation and the legislation and laws affecting our practice.
Because it is still important to keep informed of legislation affecting our practice, I would like us to focus growing our legislative committee to apprise our membership of bills and issues that are of interest to us.
In continuing my predecessors’ goals, I thank all of you that accepted his call to get involved and I look forward to working with you to expand our legislative committee and further develop ways to best serve our members.
This year, we will have our summer conference at the Red Rock Resort & Spa Las Vegas, Nevada. With your help, we will create an informative conference for 2017. If you have any interest in presenting at the Conference, please respond to our calls for sessions in the immediate future.
I invite members and non-members to visit our website at www.cwcdaa.org to learn more about the organization keep updated about exciting changes and how you can get more involved either through attending events or serving on a committee or the board of directors. In addition, please feel free to contact me, a member of our Board of Directors, a Committee Chair or Mr. Smith with questions and feedback.
Thank you for your continued support of the CWCDAA. Let's make this a great 2017 for the Association!
2017 CWCDAA President
