President's Message - September 2014
Ryan Heider - IAHU President 



One of my favorite movie lines is in Christmas Vacation.  When Clark Griswold’s cousin Eddie shows up for a surprise visit in his tenement on wheels, he asks Clark if he is surprised.  Clark’s response was “Eddie, if I woke up tomorrow with my head sewn to the carpet, I wouldn’t be more surprised than I am now.”  That line reminds me of my reaction to the phone call that I received from Vance Nielsen back in July.  He told me that he had been hired for a job outside of our industry, and regrettably would not be able to continue to serve as our State President this year.  I had to pick myself up off the carpet when he told me I would be taking his place as president for the remainder of his term.  With that being said, I am happy for Vance and his family and I wish them the very best in their new endeavor.

As IAHU President Vance had already chosen a theme for this year and it is “Deliver Value.”  I know that each of us in our association will strive to do that.  We know it is up to each of us to show the value of this great association, and help to make a difference within our industry.  It is our responsibility and our opportunity, to deliver value to our clients and serve them to the best of our ability. 

Our past president, Trent Sutton’s theme was “Membership has its Privileges.”  I believe those privileges we receive as members of this association, allow us to “Deliver Value.”  We have a strong voice fighting for us at the forefront, back in Washington D.C.  We are able to stay informed of the ongoing changes within our industry via the NAHU newswire and the Washington update.  We have the opportunity to interact with leaders in our industry at state, regional, national, and capitol conferences.  We can learn best practices and new ideas, to help us adjust to the changes in our respective lines of business.  We have more than 20,000 licensed health insurance professionals that belong to this great association.  With that powerful membership behind us, my hope is that we will continue striving to “Deliver Value!”
