Join the Midwest Claim Association at the 50th Annual Midwest Claim Conference April 22-23, 2018. The theme for 2018 is “Laugh, Learn, Lead: Engaging in Your Educational Goals.” The Midwest Claim Conference again has offered educational sessions to help us adapt to our changing industry with new opportunities and greater understanding.
The Midwest Claim Association (MCA) Board of Directors and the Midwest Claim Conference Executive Committee extend an invitation for you to join us at the Isle Casino Hotel Bettendorf and Conference Center, in Bettendorf, Iowa, for a full schedule of educational sessions including Health, Life, Disability, Workers’ Compensation, Fraud and Personal/Management.
On Sunday evening, we will be entertained by the comedy team of “Guys with Ties” in the exhibit hall. The Welcome Reception provides an opportunity to network with our exhibitors and other attendees.
We believe you will find that the Midwest Claim Conference continues to respond to feedback from our attendees by offering a leading industry conference providing a variety of topics for all levels of staff within your companies.
