Here’s What you Missed Last Month!

In the famous words of School House Rock, “Ring one, Executive.. Two is Legislative, that’s Congress.. Ring three, Judiciary… See it’s kind of like my circus, circus.”

This month’s meeting focus was legislative starting with a panel of FWAHU Members reviewing NAHU’s 2015 Legislative Priorities and reporting back on the results of visiting with Congress in Washington D.C. during NAHU’s Annual Capitol Conference.  Following the panel, Ed Oleksiak, presented a 1-hour CE, “Health Care Reform: Are We Ready for 2015″ (Provider # 34585, Course # 97817).  Not only is Ed a phenomenal speaker, he is also NAHU’s National Legislative Vice-Chair and a direct link in relaying information to us from within the beltway.  Thank you again to BenefitMall for sponsoring our luncheon!
