About Us

2018/20 Greater Central New York

Association of Health Underwriters

It is an honor and privilege to serve with the leadership team guiding our Greater Central New York Chapter to do such amazing things for the benefit of the professionals and clients with in our community.  I truly believe in the statement “Team Work Makes the Dream Work”.  We all work hard to ensure we are providing our members accurate access to information, tools, education, and more importantly legislative updates in this ever changing industry. 

Consider all that we do:

  • We regularly provide outstanding meeting programs for our members; every meeting gives the opportunity for professional development in areas our members might not otherwise be aware of.
  • We make it easy for our members to fulfill the continuing education requirements for NYS licensure.
  • We have provided social events for our members to network such as Golf Tournaments, Clambakes, holiday parties, and this year we are going to outdo ourselves again with a new Member Appreciation Event in June!
  • We stay informed and drive influence in important legislative areas...to name a few; we oppose the NYS Health Act, oppose Single Payer in Washington DC., and we worked hard to maintain fee tax status of employer sponsored insurance benefits,.
  • We have supported several outstanding charities in our communities over the years, such as Paige's Butterfly Run, McMahon Child Advocacy Center, a Room to Grow.   This year our charity is Clear Path for Veterans.  A well deserving charity of our time and commitment to help those who have served our freedom.


NAHU also knows that great leaders come from the Greater Central New York Chapter. Currently and even over the past several years we have had GCNYAHU Members serve at the State, Regional, and National levels.... Our chapter reputation in the national circles is outstanding for good reason.   Our Membership is made of amazing people who commit their time and energy to making GCNYAHU successful.  

We know by speaking with ONE voice – from local to state to regional to national, we have and will continue to make a difference.  It is energizing to work with individuals in the industry who care and are committed to stepping forward to initiate change.  We learn from each other, we collaborate from each other, and together we make a difference!

Every board member of this chapter works hard every day to ensure we are delivering for you our members.  I would be remiss not to tell you to thank them when you meet them for all that they do you our association. None of us can make GCNYAHU great on our own, I repeat Teamwork Makes the Dream Work!

What are you waiting for?  Join Us... ... Pitch in... do your part – if not for you but for your industry!    Bring your enthusiasm, pay it forward – help us help you to Make a difference!
