Comp Summit Postponed Until Next May
With special thanks to our friends at the Workers’ Compensation Board and all the attendees, faculty members, and sponsors who have helped build this conference!
For 25+ years our small but mighty team has opened the doors to Comp Summit. We believe the conference has helped the disparate components of the Maine’s workers’ compensation system work together. And, we certainly hope we’ve provided you with valued education and a welcoming conference experience.
It’s rather bittersweet that we can’t visit this September, but we’ll be back with you next May at the Samoset (final dates TBD). This fall is simply too soon to provide a safe, in-person gathering, and we don’t believe we can deliver an online experience for this conference that would meet our expectations of quality.
Look for additional information in the next few months. Until then, please be well, be safe, and continue to make a difference in the lives of the people your work affects.
Curator for the Maine Comp Summit
A Collaborative Approach to Workers’ Comp
Comp Summit is Maine’s annual, system-wide event for the workers’ compensation community. Each year we crunch the numbers, parse the language of the statute, and look to the future. The quality education at this conference reaches the legal community, occupational health and wellness providers, insurers and adjusters, case managers, and Maine employers and employees alike. We seek continuing education credit for Maine attorneys, case managers (CCM), New Hampshire insurance adjusters, and human resource professionals (SHRM CP and SHRM SCP credit and HRCI general credit).
Our mission is the pursuit of common ground for injured workers, Maine employers and the Workers’ Compensation Board. We analyze the law’s impact on a tactical “day to day” basis and its strategic impact on employee rights, the business climate in Maine, and the grand bargain that created workers’ compensation systems in the first place.
Registration fee: $550 ($500 for each additional person from the same company).
Fees provide access to all conference educational programs, the Comp Summit EXPO, conference meals, receptions, conference barista, and entertainment.
Attendees will also have access to the conference Mobile App! Access the conference schedule, view speaker bios, locate Business Partner booths, download session materials and more – all from your smartphone or tablet!
