As we focus on growth and expanding our presence in the industry, we have to keep the focus on being able to elevate every segment of our membership - which is quite the challenge!
Our next meeting will be an open forum on Medicare for All, which, if implemented, would affect everyone in our association. This forum isn't meant to be political, nor create a heated debate. It is intended to educate, and encourage input. While many people have come forth with criticisms of the idea, few have come up with alternative solutions. Whatever segment of business is your specialty, from the group market, individual products, ancillary products, and especially... Medicare, there needs to be education, and constructive discussion.
Although we will not have a meeting in April because of the NCAHU Symposium, we have already lined up guest speakers for May and June that will give us unique perspectives while addressing diverse topics. I'm looking forward to these meetings and presenting our membership with opportunities to grow and be better professionals.
