The Premier Conference for Absence and Disability Professionals

Successfully managing integrated, compliant absence and disability programs not only requires a nuanced understanding of local, state, and federal requirements, but a strong focus on continuous improvement and organizational buy-in.

The 2019 DMEC Annual Conference offers a one-of-a-kind deep dive into the challenges that leave professionals face each day. With a focus on progressive solutions, absence experts will share successful approaches to FMLA and ADA compliance, benefit programs, return to work, mental health, benchmarking, paid leave, technology, and much more. You’ll gain fresh insight and thoughtful strategies that will drive success in your programs, your organization, and your own professional development.

Registration opens in late Fall 2018. Mark your calendar!
