On Thursday, August 11 and Friday August 12, 2016, the workers’ comp bar descended on Austin for the

Workers’ Compensation Section’s Annual Conference for a two-day event of continuing legal education,

networking, and camaraderie. In addition to several other informative presentations, attendees were regaled

with knowledge about the Division’s rule-making authority by our own Jane Stone, and provided with a

thorough update on the designated doctor system by our DD guru, Erika Copeland. The social events this year

included a bowling tournament presented by the Workers’ Compensation Section. Led by David “The

Kingpin” Swanson, SLS tied for first place in the tournament.
