New at the Summit

Visit the Work Comp and Campus Service Center at the Summit. We will have a group of workers' compensation and Work Comp Campus experts available during the event to answer questions and offer information about how to best interact with the Department of Labor and Industry. Attendees can schedule a time at the Summit to meet with our subject matter experts or just walk in to ask their workers'-compensation-related questions.

Calm spaces will be available at the Summit for nursing mothers and for prayer. 

The menu for the day includes a continental breakfast, plated lunch and refreshments throughout the day.  

If you have dietary restrictions and need accommodation, email Heather Rixen at by Friday, Sept. 2.
