Minutes

A regular meeting of the Workers’ Compensation Commission Advisory Board was held on March 9, 2015 in the CRB Hearing Room at the Chairman’s Office, 21 Oak Street, Hartford, CT. The meeting convened at 10:05 a.m. with the following Board Members present: John Adamson, Michael Dimenstein, Gregory Nokes and Donald Shubert. Also attending were Chairman John Mastropietro, Michael Petosa and Connie Rue of the Workers’ Compensation Commission.

    2. Commissioner Reappointments - two Commissioners await renomination by Governor Malloy: John Mastropietro and Scott Barton.
