As winter arrives with snow on the ground, IWCI reflects on another year of growth and strong educational programs. Our final annual event, The Holiday Party, offers little education but makes up for it with Holiday Cheer. I want to thank Abbe, Kristen and Norette for their hard work and efforts to successfully bring members together for food, drinks, gambling fun and cheer. If you missed it this year, I would strongly recommend joining us next year as friends mingle and networking strengthens. There is value in our membership well beyond our educational efforts!
This month we are funding our two IWCI scholarship grants of $7500 each to area universities. I also appreciate the recommendations for our luncheon and seminar educational content for 2020. We are also coordinating with the Work Comp Board for our agenda next year as we have in prior years. Our next luncheon is February 6th at 11:30 at the Ritz Charles in Carmel. Dr. Dion Chavis will be speaking on “Upper extremity injuries and treatment from the plastic surgeon’s perspective”. I am working on content for the March 5th luncheon which could include a legislative update from the Indiana Workman’s Comp Board. More details to follow. The Northeast Chapter has a luncheon featuring Andreas Lohmar, PT January 8th at 11:30.
I hope you close 2019 with a warm Holiday and Happy New Year. Be safe, find happiness, and stay in the moment enjoying family and friends. While we can’t promise what 2020 brings, I can assure you that your IWCI Board will continue to facilitate good educational content for all members while providing a network to foster productive working relationships.
