To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I am writing to extend congratulations to Judge Benjamin J. Vinson, a resident of Greensboro, on his appointment by Gov. Brian Kemp to serve as the new chair of the State Board of Workers’ Compensation.
All Georgians will benefit from Mr. Vinson’s leadership of the board, which works to provide superior access to the Georgia Workers’ Compensation Program for injured workers and employers in a manner that is sensitive, responsive and effective and to ensure efficient processing and swift, fair resolutions of claims, while encouraging workplace safety and return to work.
By accepting this appointment, Mr. Vinson demonstrates his commitment to serving the public. We wish him well in this new capacity of statewide leadership.
Dawn M. Jones
2020-21 President, State Bar of Georgia
