The new FAHU Board of Directors just met for the first of six scheduled meetings to be held during the next 12 months. We use these meetings to conduct the business of the organization and collectively make decisions that affect our day to day as well as future operations and activities of FAHU and subsequently your local Chapters. For example, at Friday's meeting we passed our budget for the fiscal year beginning September 1st. Also, we put into effect a new procedure that will govern the way we collect and report the necessary data so that you may receive credit for the newly approved CE, just for being an active member of FAHU. That's right, we can now get CE credit for just attending Chapter meetings!
Our CFO's Office supported the CE initiative, Representative Mike Miller (R. Orlando) sponsored HB 925 and with the extra effort of our Lobbyist, Rhett O'Doski, the bill passed. We benefit; attend meetings and receive CE credit. One more membership perk!
Final preparations are being made for next month's FAHU Symposium and Expo. We hope you'll take advantage of this opportunity to hear the latest from Washington, meet insurance industry leaders with ideas to help improve and increase your business and network with your peers.
A big thank you to all who attended the Board meeting. Your input is very valuable to us. I particularly enjoyed hearing from Chapter Leadership. It sounds like all Chapters are off to a great start. If there is anything we can do to help you, please do not hesitate to contact us. I would personally welcome the opportunity to visit your Chapter. Drop me a note and we can set a date.
Finally, we now have a tentative date for our first Medicare Summit. We will let you know as soon as we determine a location. We're looking at mid-April of next year. A day that will be totally devoted to information and education surrounding this incredibly fast growing market.
