Each of the local chapters of the California Association of Health Underwriters (CAHU) are supposed to elect a Legislative Chair. Local chapter Legislative Chairs serve as the primary liaison between the local chapters’ members and legislative efforts at the State and national level.
Annually, CAHU’s House of Delegates elects a Vice President of Legislation to serve on the CAHU Executive Board. CAHU’s Vice President of Legislation takes office on July 1 and is responsible for communicating with local chapter Legislative Chairs and coordinating grassroots legislative efforts.
Usually, the Vice President of Legislation will schedule regular monthly conference calls to keep local chapter Legislative Chairs informed. If a local chapter Legislative Chair doesn’t have the schedule for conference calls, he/she should call or Email CAHU’s Vice President of Legislation to obtain the calendar of events and activities for the year.
The entire CAHU Board then votes to accept or reject the Legislative Council’s recommendations. As an organization, CAHU has no official position until the CAHU Board votes to take a position.
