“Southern” is a State of Mind


Welcome to the Southern Association of Workers’ Compensation Administrators where the Regulatory “Decision Makers” from 21 Jurisdictions and Industry Professionals from across the nation come together to share ideas, perspectives, and common concerns designed to improve workers compensation for all.

SAWCA Kept The “Comp Lights On”

During the past year …in response to the travel restriction and health concerns, SAWCA burned the midnight oil to enable discussions and information sharing among its members and the industry at large. Just a couple of months into the pandemic…in April and May of 2020… SAWCA presented a National Regulators Virtual Town Hall and a private “Regulators Only” Virtual Roundtable enabling the sharing of issues, challenges, and concerns among the leadership of state agencies. SAWCA followed up with the 72nd annual convention in a virtual format…which was followed a few months later by the 2020 All Committee Conference, also presented virtually, all events that continued the national dialogue of critical issues created by earlier events.

SAWCA Puts The Finishing Touches On The 2020 Virtual All Committee Conference

The Southern Association of Workers’ Compensation Administrators held its All Committee Conference in a virtual format November 18-19, 2020.

Regulators and industry professionals from across the nation shared their experience, knowledge, insight and perspectives on a broad range of topics as Scott Beck, Chairman of the South Carolina Commission and SAWCA President hosted our second virtual conference this year. From the Regulators Roundtable led by Judge Melodie Belcher which opened the virtual conference …followed by panel discussions led by Greg Gilbert, Concentra…and Tom Glasson, AIG … to the traditional closing session moderated by Bob Wilson, SAWCA remained true to its mission of providing quality educational opportunities for the workers’ compensation industry. 

This year has been nothing if not unpredictable… but SAWCA has continued to benefit from and is grateful for the continued support of our Sponsors, Exhibitors, Associate Members, and Attendees who partner with us to deliver an educational experience unlike any other.
