The WCB Annual General Meeting is an opportunity for stakeholders to be kept informed of customer outcomes, key deliverables, financial state of the WCB system, future innovations, updated legislation as well as hear success stories of claimants and employers alike.
Here's a recap of our view on the Annual General meeting:
Work in Progress
Every year WCB holds an annual general meeting to discuss business results and operational highlights of the year prior (2018). WCB highlights their financial activities, provides a summary of claims administered, financial statements, etc. Typically they like to share one injured worker success story. We, at Ability Management Solutions, look at this Annual General Meeting as an opportunity for injured workers to come out and voice their concerns by asking questions in hopes this would be a venue that issues can be brought back to management. This year the Annual General Meeting will be held on June 20, 2019 at the Edmonton Expo Centre. We encourage all injured workers to attend. If you are interested in attending, please complete the below form by May 21, 2019 which is the date registration opens and we will you add you to the list. We cannot guarantee that all injured workers will be able to come so our selection will be first come first serve with the priority being our current clients.
