© 2011, National Association of Health Underwriters www.nahu.org Vision Statement Every American will have access to private sector solutions for health, financial and retirement security and the services of insurance professionals. Mission Statement NAHU will improve its members' ability to meet the health, financial and retirement security needs of all Americans through education, advocacy and professional development.
© 2011, National Association of Health Underwriters www.nahu.org Governance and management NAHU, Enter State Chapter, and Enter Local Chapter are all separate legal, not-for-profit (Code Section 501(c)(6)) entities with bylaws, elected officers, and appointed committee chairs. Members of NAHUs Board of Trustees are listed at http://www.nahu.org/about/bot.cfm. The organizations professional staff directory is found at http://www.nahu.org/about/staff.cfm. Enter Link for Chapter Directory. http://www.nahu.org/about/bot.cfmhttp://www.nahu.org/about/staff.cfm Other than NAHUs professional staff, all officers and committee chairs at the national, state, and local levels are volunteers.
© 2011, National Association of Health Underwriters www.nahu.org Legislative and public policy initiatives at the federal level With health care reform implementation moving forward, our legislative and public policy initiatives are more important than ever to protect the interests of our members and their clients. Just as our members work with their clients, the collaborative efforts of NAHU staff and members educate our lawmakers and regulators about how health insurance markets work so that they are better able to understand the issues before them. NAHU has developed strong working relationships with members of both parties because they know they can trust us to give them an honest and balanced assessment of proposed legislation.
© 2011, National Association of Health Underwriters www.nahu.org Legislative and public policy initiatives at the state level Enter NAHU legislative staff regional respresentative. Enter local lobby information. NAHU participates in state organizations such as the NAIC, ALEC, NCOIL, and the National Conference of State Legislators.
© 2011, National Association of Health Underwriters www.nahu.org Grassroots Legislative success is often measured by the ability to mobilize the troops and NAHU has one of the strongest grassroots networks in Washington, DC. Our members and their willingness to participate in telling legislators what they think about pending legislation is one of our greatest assets. We sent over 25,000 messages to our legislators in 2011 and over 21,000 this year alone. Our electronic response system, Operation Shout!, is used by many members to respond to legislative alerts at both the federal and state levels. Many of our members participate in town hall meetings, legislative workshops, and in-district meetings with legislators, increasing our visibility and our influence.
© 2011, National Association of Health Underwriters www.nahu.org The Uninsured Over 50 million of our citizens currently go without health insurance. Our countrys health care financing system is a virtual web of private and public programs, and navigating options can be very difficult for consumers. Four years ago NAHU launched the Healthy Access Database (http://www.nahu.org/consumer/findagent.cfm), a state by state data- base that identifies what private insurance and government assistance options are already available.
© 2011, National Association of Health Underwriters www.nahu.org Media Relations All our efforts have little value unless the public is kept up-to-date on what we are doing. Every year, NAHU has been quoted thousands of times in publications, on radio, and on television, including CBS News, Fox News, C-SPAN, PBS, NPR, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, Good Housekeeping, Forbes Magazine, and many other mainstream and trade publications. Weve had tremendous success in training over 200 of our members each year to work with their local media, resulting in numerous additional press hits.
© 2011, National Association of Health Underwriters www.nahu.org Recent public policy research and media relations efforts Consumer Guides – We educate consumers with publications about individual and group health insurance, long-term care, disability insurance, Medicare, the role of the agent and more. Ads – NAHU offers a number of consumer-driven PSA and print ads to keep the public informed on current health care issues that affect their families well-being. Social Media – Follow NAHU on LinkedIn, become a fan of NAHU on Facebook, follow NAHU on Twitter, subscribe to NAHUs RSS feed, and read NAHUs blog. NAHU NewsWire – Is a MUST READ at the beginning of your business day!
© 2011, National Association of Health Underwriters www.nahu.org Membership Our efforts in Washington and in (Enter Chapter) increase our influence, but in the end, numbers talk. The more members we have, the louder our voice can be, and the greater ability we have to make a difference. Our membership efforts have never been more important. We need to increase our voice with policy and law makers by increasing the number of members we have.
© 2011, National Association of Health Underwriters www.nahu.org Education - NAHU has developed partnerships in many subject areas to provide more educational opportunities for its members. The availability of web seminars, train the trainer sessions, and online learning have increased significantly. -NAHU provides its members with numerous opportunities to obtain professional designations. Two professional designations, originated by NAHU and managed by The American College, are the RHU and REBC designations. -NAHU's state & local chapters offer our members quality educational opportunities to increase their knowledge & expertise; and these sessions, like this one, qualify for continuing education (CE) credits.
© 2011, National Association of Health Underwriters www.nahu.org Networking with peers -One of the greatest benefits of membership is networking. Getting to know ones peers helps you become better at what you do because of the open exchange of ideas surrounding best practices, products, services, etc. -Enter information about chapter meetings. -Also, NAHU's Broker to Broker initiative (NAHU B2B) is a focused networking resource with NAHU members all over the country, providing an interactive exchange of ideas, questions and learning.
