Mentorship and Leadership

I am excited to work with my industry colleagues who are passionate about their careers and serving their clients through these times of change.  Now more than ever, we need to join together to inspire one another; work to educate our community as to the importance of working relationships with agents and brokers; and to create a valued presence and relationship with our legislators on the State and Federal level. 

{SAHU} is excited to announce the rebranding of our Sacramento association to keep up with the rebranding at the state level, California Agents & Health Insurance Professionals- (CAHIP), to the national level the National Association of Benefits and Insurance Professionals (NABIP).  Our local chapter rebranding will make it easier for everyone to understand what we do and truly represent our members the way it was intended. And, by doing so, we can help develop a stronger connection amongst one another to grow our presence as a leader in the community.

We were excited to be back in person for all our events in 2022-2023! Our events were full of excitement, and we had a good time seeing everyone after 2 years of Zoom. In 2023-2024 we will be in person as well with new and exciting opportunities to network and meet in person even more so.  Keep an eye out for the emails and mark your calendars for our exciting events in 2023-2024, offering you fantastic opportunities to grow your business while having a blast! 

Our mission in 2023-2024 is mentorship and leadership. {SAHU} is looking for those who would like to make a difference in our chapter, in the industry, and their careers. We have started the Past Presidential Advisory Committee to provide insight, one on one mentorship, and guidance for those who are interested in leadership at the Chapter Level, State Level and National. Or lets us know how we can help you; we have the tools and people! 35 Years strong!

As a member, look forward this year to seeing more opportunities to connect, network and grow with each other as we focus on Mentorship and Leadership of our prestigious association. Taking what we learned in the past years’, going virtual allowed us to find new innovative ways to offer more benefits to our members. Creating new hybrid experiences to learn, collaborate, network, advocate and participate as a community of leaders in our insurance industry moving forward. In keeping with our mission to improve its members’ ability to meet the health, financial and retirement security needs of all Americans through education, advocacy, and professional development; we are eager to increase your access to national, statewide, and local Member Benefits this year.

I look forward to serving you,

Helen Ornellas, SAHU President 2023-24
