Applications Are Now Open for NAHUís Legislative Council
NAHU’s Legislative Council is responsible for developing and advocating for market-based solutions which provide for continued and improved choice, accessibility and affordability of health, disability, and long-term care insurance, employee benefits, and other products designed to meet the health, financial and retirement security needs of the American people. It meets monthly and provides legislative advice to the NAHU Board of Trustees, monitors state and federal legislative and regulatory activity, develops legislative and regulatory policy positions for the association, reviews requests for use of Legislative Defense Funds, oversees grassroots initiatives, shares information, and promotes communication concerning NAHU legislative policy among NAHU's members and chapters. If this sounds like something you want to be a part of, now is your chance!

NAHU is excited to announce that volunteer committee applications are now available for the Legislative Council, Media Relations Committee, Membership Council, Leading Producers Round Table Committee and Professional Development Committee. To be considered for a position, please submit your application no later than May 10.

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. In the coming weeks the Washington Update will be highlighting the different working groups within the Legislative Council. These include subject matters specific to the individual and employer sponsored plans, cost containment, Medicare, long-term care, and a new task force focused on lowering costs of prescription drugs. If you have any questions, please contact Daniel Parker.

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.

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. 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 Kelly Loussedes.

The Membership Council creates, develops and communicates effective tools that will assist state and local chapters for recruiting and retaining members. These tools will enhance the membership experience as value-added benefits. The Membership Council will work with all other national committees to develop sound strategies to show the value of NAHU's membership and grow the association. If you have any questions, please contact Bob Tretter.

The Professional Development Committee believes when we grow individually, our business grows exponentially. As such, it is committed to helping its members to "Be THE Best" by providing the tools to achieve this ultimate success. NAHU recognizes that professional development is important for its members to grow, effectively compete and be nimble in an ever-changing marketplace. This committee is looking to fill eight positions. If you have any questions, please contact Farren Baer.
