Workerscompzone is at Disneyland for the California Coalition on Workers’ Compensation 12th annual conference.
One problem with these types of conferences is that there are so many interesting sessions that it’s hard to find time to sit down and do the blog. In coming days I’ll recap my impressions.
But I don’t want to miss the opportunity to put in a word for a great organization, Kid’s Chance California.
The organization has been around for some time in other states, but California’s group was organized last year.
Kid’s Chance raises money from stakeholders in California’s workers’ comp industry and uses the money to give college scholarship grants to children of injured workers.
Currently Kid’s Chance is sponsoring a group of students who had a parent who was either killed at work or suffered a disabling job injury.
My firm, Boxer & Gerson, is proud to be one of the strong supporters of this organization along with Pacific Gas & Electric, Sedgwick CMS Claims, Paradigm, Titan Claims management and a number of other prominent California insurers, employers, adjusting firms, law firms, unions etc.
At a donor thank you event at the CCWC conference, Kids Chance board member Maria Henderson (from PG&E) introduced two current scholarship recipients. Those kids made remarks about how important the funding has been in allowing them financing to stay in school.
Major kudos are due current...
