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!
Held each year in the month of May, the Annual Charity Golf Tournament raises funds for our preferred charities.
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 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.
