SAHU will improve its member’s ability to meet the health, financial and retirement security needs of all Californians through education, advocacy, legislation and professional development.

I am pleased to be the President of Sacramento Association of Health Underwriters (SAHU) 2018-19. I have some great predecessors that came before me in this position and have some big shoes to fill! I was lucky enough to work alongside some of these great people on the Board for the past 5 years.
SAHU has been committed to preserving the private delivery of Health Insurance and working towards affordable health care options for all. We are committed to providing our members with the highest level of professional development, legislative advocacy and training, and networking opportunities while upholding the highest code of ethics in our field.
This year is no different than last, where we are faced uncertainty with federal legislation and changes to the existing Affordable Care Act and the continuing threat of Single Payer in California. Your membership and involvement is more important now than ever before. Members have access to resources and expertise through the Association to educate themselves and help them expertly communicate on these complex and critical issues with their clients, colleagues, and elected officials.
My focus this year for our Association is going to be Membership and communication delivery, if you are already a member, helping deliver the resources you have come to seek from our Association year after year and if you are not already a member, show you how becoming a member will complement your career through networking with carrier and industry leaders, legislative advocacy, and education.
I am greatly honored to be selected to serve as the 2018-19 President of Sacramento Association of Health Underwriters (SAHU). I look forward to a productive, successful year working with you all.
