CAHU PRESIDENT'S Message
2017 - 2018
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has. “– Margaret Mead –
I am honored to be selected by you to serve as the 2017-18 President of the California Association of Health Underwriters (CAHU). When I joined this association over a decade ago I had no idea how much my involvement would contribute to my personal and professional growth. I am privileged to be part of the CAHU family; some of my closest friendships and greatest mentors have come from relationships I’ve built because of my membership. I am so proud of the values CAHU stands for and the work we do for our clients and consumers.
This year we are facing uncertainty with federal legislation and changes to the existing Affordable Care Act and the continuing threat of Single Payer in Sacramento. Membership is more important now than ever before. Our members now have up-to-date resources available to them to simply and effectively communicate with their clients, colleagues, and elected officials on these critical issues.
CAHU members are professionals who are committed to preserving the private delivery of Health Insurance. Our association is the only consumer advocacy group that works on behalf of the public. We continue to adapt and advocate for the health care needs of the public we serve with a working knowledge of how financing and delivery of care work together. We are committed to providing our members with the highest level of professional development, legislative advocacy and training, and networking opportunities. CAHU members are at the top of our industry and all uphold the highest code of ethics in our field.
If you are already a member, I would like to personally say “Thank You”. If you are considering joining CAHU I welcome a conversation with you to discuss our goals and philosophies in the hope you will join our pursuit of professional excellence and affordable health care options for all.
I look forward to a productive, successful year working with you all.
