The workers’ compensation conference event of the year was held in early December 2018 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada. Praxis team members Kristen Wilson, Director of Workers’ Compensation and Philip Meyerdierks, Business Development Specialist represented the company at the National Workers’ Compensation and Disability Conference and Expo, hailed as the biggest conference in the industry for more than 25 years.
