Insurance Department hosts forums

The Oklahoma Insurance Department and the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) will host two forums on workers’ compensation on Oct. 21 in Oklahoma City and in Tulsa on Oct. 22.

“It is important that the workers’ compensation community stay up-to-date,” Insurance Commissioner John D. Doak said. “These events are packed with information that will allow them to better serve Oklahomans.”

The forums are designed to provide a greater understanding of both national and state workers’ compensation issues. There is no charge to attend but reservations are required. To register, call NCCI’s Customer Service Center at 800-NCCI-123 or click here to register online.

Three hours of Continuing Education credit is available for licensed insurance agents and adjusters.
