The Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) is now accepting nominations for its annual Carrie Nevans Community Service Awards which will be presented during the luncheons at the 21st annual educational conferences in February 2014. The awards, which began in 2010, were renamed in memory and honor of Carrie Nevans, the acting administrative director who passed away in 2011.

“This award acknowledges those MVPs who go above and beyond to benefit the comp system for the betterment of employees and employers,” said Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) Director Christine Baker. DWC is a division of DIR.

Nominations should be made for those individuals who have made a significant contribution to the betterment of the workers’ compensation community in the highest professional manner. DWC will evaluate the nominations and honor one Southern California recipient in Los Angeles and another Northern California recipient in Oakland during an award ceremony at the educational conferences.

Those who make a nomination should complete the attached DWC nomination form and send to Wendy So at no later than January 10, 2014.

Last year’s award in Northern California was given to Angie Wei, Legislative Director of the California Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO. Sean McNally, president of KBA Engineering in Bakersfield was the Southern California recipient. Both were commissioners with the Commission on Health and Safety and Workers’ Compensation. The awards were presented at the 20th annual DWC educational conference luncheons.
