IAIABC Convenes Centennial Council to Help Celebrate 100 Years in 2014


Madison, WI (WorkersCompensation.com – 2014 marks the 100th Anniversary of the International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions. In preparation for this momentous occasion, the IAIABC is forming a special Centennial Council that will help the Association commemorate its anniversary.

The Centennial Council will consist of IAIABC members from both the regulatory and private sectors of the workers' compensation industry. These groups have been at the core of the history and growth of the IAIABC over its first 100 years.

The Centennial Council will play an instrumental role in developing projects and initiatives that demonstrate how the IAIABC leads with vision, commitment, and action. Members of the Centennial Council will also serve as ambassadors throughout the year, helping celebrate the achievements of the past and vision for the future. 

Jack Nolish, IAIABC President-Elect and Deputy Director, Michigan Workers' Compensation Agency, said: “The IAIABC Centennial Council exemplifies everything the IAIABC is about: the gathering of workers' compensation leaders working together to make a difference in the industry. I look forward to working with the Centennial Council as we celebrate the IAIABC and workers' compensation.”

Centennial Council members will be asked to attend the upcoming IAIABC 99th Annual Convention, September 30 – October 3, in San Diego, CA, as well as The Forum 2014, April 7-11, and the IAIABC 100th Annual Convention, September 29 – October 2, 2014. 

IAIABC members who are interested in participating on the Centennial Council are encouraged to contact Jennifer Wolf Horejsh, IAIABC Executive Director, at jwolf@iaiabc.org or +1 (608) 663-6355.

About the IAIABC and the Centennial 

In 1914, leaders from seven jurisdictions met in Lansing, Michigan to discuss best practices in the regulation and administration of workers' compensation systems. It was at this first gathering that the International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions was born.

For 100 years, workers' compensation professionals have followed in the footsteps of the original leaders, coming together to learn, share, and “advance the efficiency and effectiveness of workers' compensation systems throughout the world.” In 2014, the IAIABC will commemorate this historic anniversary by celebrating the Association's contributions to workers' compensation and identifying opportunities to advance systems in next century.
