For 39 years, the Maryland Workers' Compensation Educational Association (MWCEA) has held the largest annual gathering of workers’ compensation leaders in Maryland. In 2024, MWCEA is creating more opportunities to learn how to address the evolving challenges in workers’ comp and new, exciting sessions to network with the industry’s most influential executives, thought leaders, and fellow attendees.
We’ve optimized the total conference experience with updated content formats, an improved layout, innovative technology, and new events. What more could you ask for from the industry’s premier national event?
REGISTRATION COMING SOON!
The MWCEA Annual Conference is an opportunity for the Workers' Compensation Community in Maryland and surrounding states to get together to network, share best practices, and learn from experts in the industry and their colleagues. Attendees hear different viewpoints, not only from our educational sessions but by participating in sessions with Maryland State Officials, during conference networking events, and by visiting with Workers' Compensation vendors during our tradeshow.
Whether you handle workers' compensation claims, are worried about sufficient care and the return to work of injured workers, focused on medical expenses and use, or just searching for a better understanding of Workers' Compensation topics, the MWCEA Convention will deliver answers.
TRADESHOW: Two floors of exhibitors under one roof, the MWCEA is home to the largest collection of Workers' Compensation resources and vendors in the state. There is simply no better place to connect and compare the goods, equipment, and services to help you do your job most effectively.
Attendees will go home with useful networking connections, fresh perspectives, CE credit, and a better comprehension of the current Workers' Compensation environment and how it continues to evolve.
