CAHU President's Message
Dear CAHU Members,
It’s hard to believe how many changes CAHU has undergone over the past 2 years. With the changing of our administrators and lobbyists, to the barrage of legislative activity on both the state and federal level; it’s been a whirlwind. That being said, as your new President, I am excited to move CAHU forward. We all owe Dan Webb and Linda Rose Koehler a debt of gratitude for making the tough choices thus, bringing us to new heights. We have had great success building relationships with our legislators and the Health Benefit Exchange Board by showing them how valuable our role is in health care reform. I continue to be optimistic about our place at the table and the huge opportunity that health care reform presents. I believe if we position ourselves correctly and continue to speak with one voice, there is nothing we cannot accomplish as an association. Our goal has always been to serve our members as we serve our clients, with respect, value, knowledge and results.
Now, this opportunity will not be without challenges. As the Supreme Court decision gets interpreted by the states there will be both potholes and landmines. To me, this is our opportunity to educate the public and get CAHU’s name solidly engrained, so that no person ever purchases an insurance policy without the guidance and expertise of a licensed health insurance agent. The roles we serve are vast and varied and in most cases reach far beyond what our license entails. We are friend, colleague, confidant and trusted advisor. I would like CAHU to continue to aspire to be the best the industry has to offer. After all, we are consumers as well…we strive to protect ourselves, our families, our businesses with the use of the very products and tools that we offer to others. We ensure that people consider the things they have not or do not want to consider …therein lies CAHU’s value to both the public and our legislators.
Our industry is evolving and although, to some, this evolution is scary and seemingly painful it is also exhilarating and exciting. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Life’s a journey, not a destination”. So thank you to all our current and future members for embarking on this journey with me.
CAHU President 2012-2103
