I am very proud to announce that the first annual FWAHU Medicare Vendor Day took place at our October meeting. We had Sponsors and Vendors representing Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement carriers, General Agencies, and FMO’s, along with 3 CE programs throughout the day.
The day was a huge success with well over 130 participants and a lot of excellent information on Medicare options that will impact health insurance producers; group benefits producers and individual medical producers in the coming year.
We offered CE presentations by Mike Smith, of The Brokerage, Inc., Eric Johnson of Agent Allies, and Clifton Stubbs of BenefitMall, along with Kasey Buckner of Granite Benefits, speaking about the NAHU Senior Issues and Medicare Advisory Panel. I would like to personally thank these FWAHU members for volunteering their time and effort to our chapter.
FWAHU signed up 7 new members during the event, with several more ―hot prospects in the pipeline for membership.
Special kudos to Amanda Leveridge, our Programs and Education Chair, who did a phenomenal job in planning the Medicare Day event, securing sponsors and vendors, as well as publicizing the event to gain maximum attendance. Thank you for all of your hard work, Amanda!
