WCIRB Conference Oakland CA – My Mistake Turned Out OK
From The WCIRB Conference Oakland CA – my mistake on thinking it was a full-day conference. The WCIRB used to host one day conferences. Their conference booklets from 2002 – 2010 still sit in my bookshelf.
If you search this blog, you will find a few articles that consist of my attendance at those conferences. The WCIRB’s presenters were always top-notch and very informal, which made the day-long conferences almost a roundtable of sorts.
Yes, I traveled to WCIRB’s (Workers’ Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau) HQ without reading the conference press release more closely. I did have two clients in the area to visit, so my trip was not a washout.
The WCIRB’s personnel have been very helpful with generally a great attitude when I contacted them over the years. No manuals were provided except for an advertisement for their new designation – WorkComp Essentials.
Californians are great networkers. I talked to quite a few agents and premium auditors. The number of premium auditors at the meeting was surprising. The subject of the meeting consisted of the 2019 and 2020 changes to the Classification Codes.
If I remembered the total correctly, the WCIRB changed over 200 CLass Codes. Two agents that I met were not happy as their insured clients were a tad upset with the changes.
The WCIRB is going to cover AB 5 and its implications. I posed the question – There are now two or more Assembly bills introduced that may change AB 5. Should the WCIRB wait until to see the ramifications of those bills to see what effect they will have on the process? I saw other attendees shaking their heads in agreement. The WCIRB presenter said their lawyers are following those Assembly Bills closely.
The WCIRB said they were going to post the video of the meeting online sometime soon on their website. That video would be one to watch.
I am now attending the NCCI 2020 Data Conference – West Palm Beach, FL. I will write a report on that one tonight. Thanks to the WCIRB for hosting the WCIRB Conference Oakland CA. I just wish it had been longer.
