New Commissioner to Keynote Texas Worker's Comp Forum

The Council on Education in Management announced that Division of Workers' Compensation Commissioner Rod Bordelon will present a keynote address at the upcoming Texas Workers' Comp Forum, Oct. 1-3, taking place at the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas. Other leaders in Texas worker's compensation will also be on hand to present updates on HB 7 reforms, claims-management strategies, case studies, and the latest developments on the burning issues facing the Texas worker's comp system.

We are honored to have him join the fantastic lineup of speakers at the event."
