Workers' Compensation

DE Workers Comp Section Meeting on 10/11/11, aka Happy Hour at the Ale House

Workers Comp Section Chair John Gilbert's reminder appears below to encourage all of the work comp practitioners to attend the Section's 10/11/11 meeting.  I, for one, want to know more about those newly-proposed IAB Rule changes.  I expect that the members of our IAB Rules Committee will be in attendance to give us all a heads up on what to expect from these new rules.  Do you really want to have to hear about this on the street?  Or be the last to know?

For some of you out there, the new time limits on opening and closing arguments are going to be more painful than a trip to the dentist.  As one who considers herself the Queen of Brevity, I think I am going to enjoy this.

But here is what John has to say:

"As a reminder, please note that the next WC Section meeting is moved from the normal first Monday meeting date, to Tuesday 10/11/11 at 4:00 p.m. at the offices of Heckler and Frabizzio. Section sponsored Happy Hour to follow at the Washington Street Ale House 5:30 to 7:00  At the 10/11/11 section meeting, the proposed IAB Rules, for which there is a scheduled Public comment meeting on 10/18/11, will be on the agenda.

Also, at the last Section meeting 9/12/11, a discussion was held concerning updating our Section meeting format or schedule. Some ideas included:

*   Lunch meetings instead of late afternoon/evening meetings, perhaps combined with invited speakers of WC interest

*   Meeting every other month, with thought to increase attendance, and perhaps more regular after meeting social events.

Please feel free to reply to this email with any suggestions and of course to attend the 10/11/11 Section meeting.

Lastly, some expressed an interest in participation in the next Section meeting via telephone. Please email me directly if you need to arrange telephonic participation."

So come to be enlightened.  Or come for the Happy Hour.  But for pity's sake just come.

Irreverently yours,
Cassandra Roberts
