The BX Executive Leadership Experience (BXLX) graduated its 7th cohort last week and is accepting applications for the Class of 2019, which begins this fall.
BXLX runs from Sept. 11 through May 14, 2019 and features nationally-recognized experts in construction leadership and business development. Topics include:
In addition to executive education and coaching, each class develops a lasting peer network with industry colleagues. The previous classes have included company presidents, vice-presidents, operations managers, project executives and project managers.
For more information on this construction-specific leadership program or to reserve a seat, contact Deb Murphy.
By now, you’ve received a letter and enrollment form from the BX endorsing CareWorks as the Managed Care Organization (MCO) of choice for our members. We understand and are aware that there are other MCOs vying for your business and you only have until May 25 to choose. (2018 MCO Open Enrollment runs April 30 – May 25.)
Don’t miss out on this very limited opportunity to have your workplace injuries medically managed by an MCO focused on a critical area of workers’ compensation – return to work. Just one lost-time claim can cost your company significant dollars and effect your bottom line for years. Your business can’t afford even one lost-time claim.
