Two Weeks Remaining for Legislative Council Applications

If you’ve ever wanted to be a part of NAHU’s National Legislative Council—the group charged with reviewing timely legislative and regulatory issues and shaping the association’s policy—you have just over two weeks remaining to submit your application for consideration to this exclusive group. In addition to Legislative Council, applications are also available for the Media Relations Committee, Professional Development Committee and Leading Producers Round Table (LPRT) Committee. All applications must be completed and submitted no later than May 15.
The Legislative Council provides policy advice to the NAHU Board of Trustees and promotes communication concerning NAHU's government affairs efforts to NAHU's members and chapters. The council is looking to fill just a few positions, but there are many subcommittees and working groups of the council that need members too, so we encourage all members with a strong interest in health policy to apply. If you have any questions, please contact Husni Abdelaziz.
The Media Relations Committee strives to educate NAHU members on the media tools available on the NAHU website. The committee will work to consistently have available letters-to-the-editor, op-eds, press releases, PSAs and support when it comes to sharing NAHU's message with media resources. And lastly, the committee ensures that members of the committee speaking on behalf of NAHU will speak with one voice: NAHU's voice. This committee is looking to fill eight positions. If you have any questions, please contact Cira Fear.
The Professional Development Committee believes that when we improve our skills and expand our knowledge individually, our business grows exponentially. NAHU continues to demonstrate its commitment to the professional development of our members through our very successful certification programs, and the Professional Development Committee is committed to the goal of strengthening professionals by providing NAHU members the tools to achieve the ultimate success of being the best. This committee has only a few open positions to fill, however there are many working groups formed on behalf of the committee that need members, so we encourage members with a subject matter expertise in self-funding, consumer driven healthcare, ethics, wellness, ERISA, HIPAA, voluntary worksite and other specialized areas to apply. If you have questions, please contact Farren Baer.
The LPRT Committee recognizes health insurance producers whose skill and experience have placed them among the most successful sales professionals in the industry, as measured by new sales and a maintained book of business. The committee reviews and sets the criteria for qualification and proposes means of publicly recognizing qualifiers as well as developing programming and benefit options. This committee is looking to fill eight positions. If you have any questions, please contact Brooke Willson.
