I registered for the 2020 symposium and watched it from front to back.  Most of the conference was worth it.   See my below recommendations for the “do-not-miss” sessions.

As pointed out in my previous article, quite a large amount of data is still premature when analyzing how the pandemic affected workers comp.  Regardless, this will be the best online conference on Workers Comp so far this year, and possibly for the whole year.

A partial press release is below with my comments: 

The National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) announced today that it has opened registration for its Annual Issues Symposium (AIS) 2021—Stronger Together, to be held May 11–12, 2021. Offered virtually to the workers compensation industry and beyond, the event will be open to everyone and offered at no charge. Registration details can be found at ncci.com/AIS.

2021 NCCI Annual Issues Symposium – two data heavyweights

All the presenters will have golden nuggets of information.  I have attended numerous video and in-person conferences with Dr. Hartwig presenting data.  His CPCU and Ph.D. combo make for at least a few nuggets of info that will astound you.  I have referenced his articles over the last 15 years starting with his Insurance Information Institute presentations and articles.

1:00 p.m.–1:45 p.m. The Economics of Work Comp and the COVID Effect
Robert P. Hartwig, PhD, CPCU
Clinical Associate Professor of Finance, Darla Moore School of Business, University of South Carolina

Bob Hartwig discusses the effect of the pandemic, ensuing recession, the economic stimulus efforts, and the ongoing recovery on our workers compensation system. Submit your questions during Bob’s live presentation and he will answer the top three before the end of his session. – great chance for data insights.  

Barry’s booming voice was always part of the WCRI in-person conferences when he asked questions. You will learn a lot of info in 15 minutes.  I wish he had been given longer for his presentation.

2:00 p.m.–2:15 p.m. Latest Trends in Time to Treatment
Barry Lipton, FCAS, MAAA
Practice Leader and Senior Actuary, NCCI

Join Barry Lipton as he examines the effects of the pandemic on the delivery of medical services to injured workers and their potential impact on claim costs.

Make sure to register for the 2021 NCCI Annual Issues Symposium.
