New WCIRB Committee Members Elected

The Workers' Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau (WCIRB) held their 96th annual meeting this week in San Francisco. WCIRB President and CEO Bill Mudge described the efforts underway to modernize the WCIRB's operations and prepare the organization for its 100 year anniversary.

"This company will soon reach a significant milestone. We are about to reach the 100th anniversary of our founding and my entire team is committed to modernizing our operations through the use of new technologies, increasing transparency in our operations by making more information available to a wider audience, and to fostering teamwork with our primary stakeholders to ensure we are providing the products and services they need," said Mudge. 


Following Mudge's remarks, the WCIRB membership elected new insurer members of the Governing Committee and Classification and Rating Committee to fill vacancies created by expiring terms.
