This Year's Word: Connecting
This year's event opened with NCCI President and CEO Bill Donnell emphasizing the importance of connecting during times of constant change. Before an audience of more than 900 top carrier executives, regulators, and stakeholders, Donnell spoke of the work, the worker, and the workplace of the future with his focus on understanding how those dynamics might shape the workers compensation industry.
State of the Line
Following Donnell's remarks, NCCI's Chief Actuary Kathy Antonello, FCAS, FSA, MAAA, delivered the company's highly anticipated State of the Line Report, which provided the audience with a detailed description of 2017 industry results, market indicators, and trends.
