  • DIA Seeking Volunteers

    All the Mass.gov websites will be moving to a new platform with the goal of being more user-friendly. Right now the DIA is looking to put together a control group of 25 – 30 people that represent attorneys, insurers, employers and some claimants, if possible.

    If interested, please contact Lisa Gilgan directly at:

    Email: Lisa.Gilgan@massmail.state.ma.us
    Tel: 857-321-7482
    (E-mail is the preferred contact method.)

    She will be sending out a survey link that Mass.gov has put out and then will send out a separate survey that is specific for the DIA at a later date.

    Thank you very much for your assistance.
