However, we are all committed to carry on and continue to fulfill David's vision of providing workers compensation professionals with the most unbiased news, education and resources in the industry. We will also strive to make this year's Comp Laude® Awards & Gala event the best ever. The Comp Laude® event encapsulates his vision and passion for the industry. David was very proud of the team that he had assembled and we are working very hard to support each other and our valued customers.
