Santa for Seniors January 16 2015

Every year, JAHU members sponsor Santa for Seniors by adopting a local senior citizen and buying them Christmas gifts per their wishes.  These gifts range from cooking necessities, clothing items, toiletries and other various needs we take for granted.  Christmas in 2014 was no different.  60 seniors were adopted and provided for by our membership.  Below is a picture of a few members along with the Santa for Seniors coordinators.

CJ Stewart as our guest July 16 2014

During our May meeting, we were blessed to hear Mississippi native, CJ Stewart speak about his life and his foundation.  In short, he felt called to be a soldier...and an epitome of a soldier he is.  During his tenure in Afghanistan, he was injured.  Upon arriving home and recovering, he started the CJ Stewart foundation and opened the Down Range outdoor adventure camp where youth can learn their value as individuals and know they are loved.  Just as we challenged those attending this meeting, we challenge you to support this foundation and camp.  Click here to learn more about CJ Stewart, Down Range, and how to support.

Support MAHU-PAC October 25 2013

MAHU-PAC is a political action committee representing the members of the Mississippi Association of Health Underwriters (MAHU).

Why is MAHU-PAC necessary?

The health insurance industry is our livelihood and affects the entire State. It is directly affected by our statewide elected officials and the state legislature. MAHU-PAC allows MAHU to combine its strengths and resources to help candidates who support our career, our markets, and our consumers.

Legislatively, MAHU works to:

  • Provide council and assistance to organizations and interests working to face the challenge of providing adequate and affordable health care.
  • Promote accountability and fiscal responsibility in public health and the review of new health care proposals in both the public and private sectors.
  • Educate and effectively communicate government affairs information to MAHU members on matters of importance in areas affecting health care law.
  • Empower these same members and others to take responsibility for their own health care and get involved in the issues our industry faces.

Who can donate to MAHU-PAC?

Mississippi allows members, family members, and interested corporations to donate to MS Political Action Committees.

How can I donate?

Your donation today will ensure that the Mississippi Elected officials that support our objectives and livelihood will be re-elected to further our  local and national legislative causes.
