Join us at the NWCDN’s Workers’ Compensation Conference in Hartford, CT, on October 16, 2013 and October 17, 2013.
An NWCDN Cocktail Reception will be held at the Hartford Science Center, located next to the Marriott Hotel, in Hartford, CT, on October 16, 2013.

The NWCDN Cocktail Reception is from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM and the Reception is an excellent opportunity to meet NWCDN members, and their constituencies.

The NWCDN Conference will then be conducted at the Hartford Marriott, located at 200 Columbus Blvd., Hartford, CT 06103 on October 17, 2013, 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM, with lunch provided.

The NWCDN’s Workers’ Compensation Conference on October 17, 2013 will involve a Key Note Presentation by David A. North, the President and Chief Executive Officer of Sedgwick Claims Management Services, Inc., regarded by many as being one of the largest Third-Party Administrators involved with workers’ compensation claims and issues, as well as being in the forefront of legislative and administrative reforms affecting employers and businesses facing the tough challenges presented by today’s workers’ compensation claims.

On October 17, 2013 the NWCDN’s Workers’ Compensation Conference will also include sessions that will deal with the following:

• Future challenges for workers’ compensation professionals;
• Medical marijuana, “to inhale or not?”;
• Pain management issues, “you talkin to me?”.

Registration for the Conference is very simple, as all you will need to do is to register on the NWCDN’s website,, choosing the link for Seminars, with a special rate having been reserved at the Hartford Marriott, for anyone attending both the Cocktail Reception on October 16, 2013, and the Conference on October 17, 2013.

Immediately following the NWCDN’s free Workers’ Compensation Seminar and Conference on October 17, 2013, there will be a Cocktail Reception hosted by the NWCDN at the Hartford Marriott.

As for Hartford being the NWCDN’s destination, all will recognize Hartford as being the home base to numerous insurance companies and third-party administrators, with insurance being Hartford’s major industry.

Hartford is also one of the oldest Cities in America, originally being explored by Dutch fur traders in 1614, with Fort Goede Hoop being founded at the confluence of the Connecticut and Park Rivers in 1623. The first English settlers arrived in 1635, first naming Hartford as New Town, but later renaming it as Hartford.

Hartford is home to the nation’s oldest public Art Museum, the Wadsworth Atheneum, as well as its oldest public park, Bushnell Park.

It also has the oldest continuously published newspaper, The Hartford Courant, as well as the second oldest secondary school, Hartford Public, currently being the home to several world-class educational institutions, to include Trinity College, the University of Connecticut’s School of Business, University of Connecticut’s School of Law, St. Joseph’s College, and the University of Hartford.

Mark your calendars, charge up your Easy Pass, book your flights, and confirm your attendance to stay current with the latest developments in workers’ compensation practices and procedures throughout the United States.
