Without a fully unified private health/disability insurance industry, the chance of maintaining private sector insurance delivery is greatly diminished! We have all seen government attempts to take over health care delivery, as we know it. There is little doubt that such proposals will continue to surface in the years to come. The survival of competitive individual sales of private health/disability depends on each member’s strong affiliation, strong positive image, and representation before the public and public officials. Providing a unified message to all these opinion leaders is essential and best done by your association. WAHU is dedicated to helping each member control his or her destiny and that of their profession.
THE MISSION IS…
WAHU represents you and all of its members with one unified voice. On-going legislative and agency lobbying is a top priority of our association, and is designed to educate those who regulate and control the destiny of your industry.
When you join WAHU, you CAN also become part of NAHU (National Association of Health Underwriters).
NAHU provides nationally the same representation WAHU does on the state level... plus a monthly magazine, informational mailings, meetings, seminars, and conferences.
WAHU offers a wide variety of top quality continuing education programs throughout the state, year round, at extremely competitive prices.
All courses are submitted for approval to meet the annual state continuing education requirements in order to maintain your health/disability license.
Through regularly scheduled Chapter Meetings, Regional Health Summits and the Annual Sales Conference-Trade Show, WAHU presents agents and companies the opportunity to come together for informational programs as well as the chance to network with one another.
Our annual convention allows attendees to interact with their colleagues and companies in business, educational, informational, and social settings.
Communicating to the members and to the public are both important activities of WAHU. Our regular member mailings, eNews, and our tri-annual newsletter, WAHU NEWS, keep you abreast of current industry trends, issues, and legislative activities.
We also provide the media with current information on our industry so that they can better inform the public about our industry and the important role we play in the delivery of health and disability coverage.
