    TAHU 30TH ANNUAL CONVENTION

    2018 marks our 30th year and we will be rolling out the red carpet as we celebrate this important milestone in our organization. The convention theme this year is “Power of the Past - Force of the Future” and we celebrate the strength of our membership, how we have navigated healthcare reform and continue to move forward and position our success for the next 30 years.

    We will kick off the fun on Wednesday evening with a Welcome Event/Meet and Greet at The Rustic located in The RIM. Thursday, we will begin the day with CE breakouts followed by lunch in the exhibit hall and the opening general session with Keynote Speaker, Jeremiah Desmarais, author of “SHIFT: 201 Instant-Action Proven Marketing Strategies to Sell More Insurance and Financial Products”, who is a 23-time award-winning financial marketer, TED Speaker and Philanthropist who has been featured on Forbes, CNN and Worth. On Friday, we will have a half day with two additional industry speakers, Janet Trautwein, CEO, National Association of Health Underwriters and Misty Baker, ACA Certified, Director of Compliance, BenefitMall, and more time to spend with exhibitors and sponsors.
