NAHU has 20,000 members across the country; you are the reason we exist. Your participation in lobbying and advocacy is the reason we've become a force in Washington and in state houses across the country. Your recruitment efforts are why membership is up 33% over the past five years. Your contribution of your time and talents is why we have over 200 chapters across the country.
We never want to take these efforts for granted because, without you, we would suffer the fate experienced by countless other nonprofit associations: declining numbers, shaky finances and a demoralized membership.
NAHU created the President's Triple Crown Program to recognize those members whose individual contributions to NAHU help advance the association's mission. Like baseball's Triple Crown, it recognizes accomplishments in three key areas. However, while baseball's Triple Crown hasn't been won since 1967, NAHU's Triple Crown can be won every year by hundreds of our members.
To qualify for the Triple Crown, within the calendar year (01/01-12/31), a member must:
HUPAC: Participate in $10 x 12 draft program or contribute $150 total
Membership: Recruit two or more new members
Advocacy: Use Operation Shout to send three or more messages
One, two, three -- it's that simple! While members have one year to complete the requirements, winners will be announced quarterly.
Membership Recruitment Standings - January 1 - June 30, 2009
Operation Shout Standings - January 1 - June 30, 2009
HUPAC Standings - January 1 - June 30, 2009
Members who meet these criteria will be recognized in a variety of ways, including a unique "President's Triple Crown" lapel pin, recognition in HIU, and on NAHU's website and through press releases sent to qualifiers' local newspapers.
Individually, the Triple Crown accomplishments are not difficult to do, but together they help reinforce NAHU's position as America's premier association for health and employee benefits professionals. Many NAHU members qualified in 2008, and we look forward to recognizing many more in 2009!
