You might think it’s the onset of summer and the lure of vacation time that has me humming Jimmy Buffett’s “Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes” – and you might be right! But events happening here at Zywave have me contemplating other changes of locale as well, and I want to share those with you:

Change latitudes in person – Meet me at the 2012 National Workers’ Compensation and Disability Conference® & Expo

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be presenting at the 21st annual National Workers’ Compensation and Disability Conference® & Expo. Billed as “the nation’s leading event for anyone involved in the workers’ comp and disability management industries,” the conference will be held November 7 – 9, 2012, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The agenda includes four tracks:

Palm tree chairs and umbrella on tropical beach
A change in latitude, as Jimmy Buffett suggests, can sure be a good thing! But don’t let my current preoccupations with tropical climes fool you – the National Workers’ Compensation and Disability Conference is in Las Vegas this year.

  • Better Claims Management (featuring a session by yours truly),

I’m always grateful for interaction with my readers, because I always learn from your questions and comments. Keep ’em coming – by email and through comments here on the blog and in social media!
