The Wilson Agency Attends NAHU’s Annual Convention and Exhibition


(Anchorage, AK) – The National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU) held its 84th Annual Convention and Exhibition on June 29-July 2 in Scottsdale, AZ. Over 700 health insurance professionals from across the country gathered to learn about products, attend training for licensure renewal, and get the latest information on federal and state legislation.

Jolene Bryant & Terry Allard, of The Wilson Agency, attended this conference that focused on assisting health insurance professionals to continue servicing clients through the legislative and regulatory changes affecting the health insurance market. They received the latest information on state and federal legislation and attended continuing education courses on how to assist clients with ­­­­­­­­­­­­­consumer directed health care strategies, avoiding fraud in employee benefits and including options for small employer to move to individual products­.

Both women have been actively involved in the industry for many years.  Allard has been a NAHU member for 17 years and this was her 3rd convention.  Bryant has been a NAHU member for 5 years and this was her second convention.  Currently, Allard serves on the national board for the Health Underwriter Political Action committee and is a board member for the Alaska Association of Health Underwriters, one of over 200 NAHU chapters across the country.  Bryant is President-elect for the Alaska Association of Health Underwriters.

Convention’s guest speakers included many industry and business leaders speaking about healthcare reform and business strategies.

“Because of their dedication to continuing education and vast experience in the changing health insurance market, NAHU members are the most highly trained, best qualified health insurance professionals in America,” said NAHU CEO Janet Trautwein. “NAHU’s convention offers more continuing education credits, new product information and legislative updates than any other industry meeting.”

Allard and Bryant said of the conference, “Attending the convention provided valuable information on consumer directed strategies we look forward to sharing with our clients.  We gathered information on the national perspective of what other companies are doing to overcome the challenge of rising costs and decreasing benefits.”
