Membership in the AWCO offers several professional and social opportunities annually to interact with other workers' compensation professionals. Usually, the highlight of the year is the annual AWCO Spring Conference where its members come together for two days of education, fun, and fellowship.  This year, the pandemic forced the conference to be postponed to November, but it was held and held in person (and virtually).  Hopefully, things will improve, and the conference can, again, be held in person in 2021.  Membership is only $75 if paid prior to February 28, 2021.  After that, the annual fee goes up to $150.  Once you are an AWCO member, the Annual Conference is free.  You pay nothing, nada, zero, zilch to register and attend. You can complete your membership registration at  We hope to see you at the conference and in person in 2021!
