"The MSIA organization has played a critical role in helping to establish a favorable workers’ compensation system for employers in Michigan. Through the years, the MSIA members have spent many hours working with the Workers’ Compensation Agency and educating the legislature to initiate favorable changes in the law to make Michigan more attractive for employers to bring jobs to this state.  The MSIA publishes an informative newsletter that enlightens employers of the changes in the legislative and judicial process as well as organizing informative seminars. Board members are open to suggestions of their membership to changes. A membership in the MSIA is important for the employer to have, so they can keep up to date on changes in the law and an opportunity for the employers to become involved."    Donald F. Ducey, founding member of Conklin Benham, P.C. and MSIA member for 50+ years
