Key Volunteers Needed to Represent ISAHU!

ISAHU is offered the opportunity to have two members serve terms on the Department of Insurance producer education and continuing education advisory council. Currently Susan Rider and Jeff Goodwin fill these two positions. Both of their three (3) year terms will expire in early 2023. Though that may seem like a long time in the future it can take as long as one year for the Governor to approve an ISAHU nominee. Susan and Jeff review and approve (or decline) all health insurance related CE classes up for renewal or initial approval. It is vital that ISAHU take advantage of this opportunity and be represented by members that care about the type and quality of CE courses being offered in Indiana via our local and state chapters and carrier partners. At this time each volunteer is paid $50 a month by the Department of Insurance. If you are interested in submitting an application to be a nominee to represent ISAHU on this committee please contact ISAHU President Jennifer Mitchen at president@ishau.org.
