The Annual Event
The Workers’ Compensation Fall Section Meeting is so much more than your typical conference. It’s a cornerstone in PA Workers’ Compensation—the annual gathering of like-minded professionals uniting to exchange ideas, share best practices and learn new ways of doing business.
The Fall Section Meeting is the easiest way to stay current on new developments, significant case, medical perspectives, today's practice issues, judicial insights and more. You will take back to the office current, practical information plus the substantive knowledge you need to stay at the top of your game.
Valuable Networking Opportunities
The Fall Section Meeting is considered the meeting place for Workers' Comp practitioners. Mix and mingle at the Reception on Thursday evening. Catch up with friends and colleagues from across the Commonwealth during the event. Make new contacts and expand your network.
