A Message From Our President
COSIPA was formed in 1972, with just a few public agency members. The membership has continued to grow tremendously, with members throughout the State of California.
I started to attend COSIPA meetings when I began my career in workers’ compensation in 1995. Having the ability to meet with other professionals involved with public agency claims has given me the opportunity to grow in my career. COSIPA has also given me the ability to expand my experiences in both my professional and personal life.
Membership in COSIPA allows you to obtain firsthand knowledge of how to handle the challenges we all face in our respective organizations and how to get through these issues with positive outcomes whenever possible.
Keeping up with the ever changing workers’ compensation laws, as well as all the overlapping issues we are faced with, such as ADA, FEHA and other employment laws is extremely challenging. At COSIPA we strive to keep our programs current and tailored to meet the needs of our attendees. We listen to you and ask for your input regarding topics that would be beneficial to each of you in your endeavor to be an asset to your organizations.
Please join us at our meetings, meet some new people, catch up with friends and colleagues and take back some key points that will help you when you are back at your desk. Remember, we are here because of you, our members, to help you to grow in your careers and continue to make COSIPA a great value to all who attend.
As a bonus, claims adjusters receive CE units and attorneys receive MCLE units.
Look forward to seeing you all at our upcoming meetings!
