All AGC of Washington members are invited—and encouraged—to attend their respective upcoming Retro Think Tank meeting during October 2015. You will leave the meetings with your 2016 proposed EMR along with valuable information designed to save you time and money by lowering L&I rates and maximizing premium refunds.
In this blog post, we’ll walk you through a few changes this year and provide an overview of how these meetings are operated. Whether you’re a new member or a longtime partner of AGC of Washington, we hope it’s a helpful refresher.
