Event Information

The AWCCA annual seminar offers the premier educational and networking opportunity for the Arizona workers’ compensation community. We provide dynamic speakers and topical presentations along with vendor booths and break sessions, encouraging the kind of informal networking that can’t take place in most office settings. The annual seminar has been held at the Desert Willow Conference Center for the last several years, offering a convenient location as well as delicious refreshments and lunch. We’d love for you to join us next year!

More information to come: 

Rehabilitant of the Year: The Rehabilitant of the Year (ROTY) award is presented annually to an AZ injured worker who has overcome significant obstacles and has reached his or her highest rehabilitation potential.  This even is to recognize the nominee's accomplishments.

The Membership Committee was formed to welcome new members, identify the needs and interests of current AWCCA members, and increase membership. The committee plans member events such as the ICA Seminar Summer Social (an after-seminar party for networking opportunities) as well as the Holiday Party held in December. The Membership Committee also explores other event opportunities throughout the year to support the members of AWCCA.

To offer our members some additional educational content during the COVID pandemic, AWCCA has been hosting regular lunch-and-learn presentations. These presentations are like our dinner meeting presentations in which we offer a speaker on a topic relevant to the workers’ compensation community. The interactive, online presentations are done during the lunch hour, and presentations are held to 45 minutes so our members can participate from home or from the office during their lunch break. We hope you can join us soon!

AWCCA offers monthly dinner meetings from September through April, each on a topic relevant to the workers’ compensation community. Guest speakers include a variety of industry experts including attorneys, physicians, physical therapists, claim managers, etc. Topics range from recent law changes to the latest medical procedure, and meetings offer the additional benefit of networking with your peers, as well as delicious dinner selections.
