This month is a busy month for the chapter and our Association. Our chapter sent 5 members to Capitol Conference in Washington D.C. It was an exciting time to be in our Country's Capitol. The Indiana delegation made up of 28 members from 7 chapters who met with all our legislators. We heard from our NAHU experts on what are the industry's priorities and the steps needed to move our agenda forward. Over the next few months, you will hear from Cap Con attendees on their overall experience and a few of their takeaways. Next month, our legislative team will provide more details on how NAHU is helping shape the priorities for stabilizing the Individual markets, recommendation to shift items back to the States and repealing the HIT, Cadillac and Employer Exclusion. You won't want to miss our March 20, 2017 meeting.
Our February program included a 1 hour CE on NAHU Navigation and Resources: How to Navigate Our Association websites, refreshing member profiles, online renewal with bank drafts, Compliance Corner, Legislative Priorities, and Certification and Designation programs. A Special Thank you to Amber Frey, Medpartners, for sharing her expertise and providing the training.
