Why Become a Member of IWCI?
The Indiana Worker’s Compensation Institute was co-founded in 1991 by a small group of people led by Betty Croshaw and John Shanks. IWCI has grown to become an organization with over 300 current members. The membership includes claims examiners and adjusters, employers, nurse case managers, health care professionals, attorneys and companies providing services to injured workers. The members of IWCI and their guests attend educational training sponsored by the 3 regional chapters of IWCI, conveniently centered in Indianapolis, Merrillville, and Fort Wayne.
IWCI’s primary mission is to promote and conduct educational programs focused on Worker’s Compensation and related areas, as well as to assist IWCI members in improving their skills in addressing the needs of injured workers. IWCI strives to be an asset to injured workers, their employers and the insurance companies in providing treatment following a work accident.
Every year IWCI funds the Betty Croshaw Memorial Scholarships at Indiana State University and Ball State University to support the education of young people pursuing a degree in insurance and claims management. As of 2018, more than 80 students have been granted scholarships supported by IWCI.
