What makes Health Underwriters a potent force in shaping legislation is our members’ personal relationships with lawmakers. Members become trusted advisers and sounding boards to their local representatives. You can be a part of this grassroots effort by participating in LAAHU’s Adopt a Legislator program.

Congress expects organizations to complain about proposed legislation. But they respect those groups who offer solutions. No organization can have an impact if their answer to every proposal is a strident “no.” Health Underwriters has developed in-depth policy papers on issues that matter–another reason why lawmakers hold the organization in such high regard.
Each year LAAHU members join colleagues from around the state to visit lawmakers in Sacramento and from across the country to meet with representatives in Washington. Join us there and make a difference. NAHU’s next Day at the Capital in Washington is February 13-15, 2017. CAHU’s upcoming Capital Summit in Sacramento is May 21-22, 2016.
