New WCIRB Committee Members Elected at 100th Annual Meeting

Executives representing more than 60% of the WCIRB's regular membership met today in Oakland for the 100th Annual Meeting of the WCIRB. At the meeting, the WCIRB membership elected new insurer members to the Governing Committee and Classification and Rating Committee to fill vacancies created by expiring terms.

WCIRB President and CEO Bill Mudge opened the meeting by highlighting some of the WCIRB’s recent accomplishments and by providing an update on the status of its multi-year transformation effort:

In the four years since we began our strategic transformation, we have launched over 100 major initiatives dedicated to getting us ready to meet the challenges of our next century. As always, our focus is on becoming more agile, modern and easier to do business with. We continue to develop innovative new products and services that expand access to information and provide insight into system cost drivers. Our forward-looking outreach and education program spans the entire state as it reaches the system’s stakeholders. And we have invested in our leadership team to make sure we are thinking big, taking on the toughest challenges, and delivering value to our members.”

Turning toward 2016, Mr. Mudge outlined plans for several initiatives that are part of the organization’s continuing transformative agenda. Included were game-changing initiatives around “big data,” new technologies designed to speed the flow of data between the WCIRB and its members, a transformation of the inspection report and classification inspection process, and a continued evolution of the WCIRB’s various online services designed to expand real-time, self-service access to data.

Following Mr. Mudge's remarks, members voted on the nominees to fill vacancies on the Governing Committee and Classification and Rating Committee. Committee members elected at today’s meeting will serve three-year terms expiring at the Annual Meeting in 2019.
