NEWARK - The National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU) is proud to announce that the New Jersey Association of Health Underwriters has once again received Gold Certification – awarded to the strongest chapters in the nation.

NJAHU achieved Gold Certification from national headquarters underscoring how well the organization has operated and achieved its lofty goals in the past year. The NJAHU board has been focused on programs and initiatives that would elevate the state chapter, once again, to Gold status.

NJAHU President Kim Greene said she was thrilled to learn about the statewide award, a culmination of the hard work of many people. "We are blessed with a strong group of volunteers and a strong board. And the results show," she said.  “I would like to thank our awards chair, Judy Levine, for her hard work and dedication to helping the association achieve this award.”

The NJAHU represents health insurance brokers and other industry professionals across the state of New Jersey, from the Northwest all the way to Cape May.

The NJAHU was recognized for this award as part of NAHU's Chapter Certification Program, an ongoing program that recognizes excelling chapters throughout the calendar year.  Recognition is based on specific criteria. To earn Gold Certification, chapters must satisfy at least nine of 14 criteria. Once a chapter satisfies six of the 14 criteria, it can apply for Silver Certification. If all 14 are satisfied, the chapter will automatically receive Platinum Certification.

“The leadership of NAHU members has a far-reaching impact on providing for the healthcare needs of individuals, families and business in their communities. We are grateful for New Jersey’s hard work with development and membership and recognize them for their efforts with this well-deserved award,” said NAHU CEO Janet Trautwein.

The New Jersey Association of Health Underwriters (www.njahu.org), is a statewide consumer advocacy organization of professionals in the health insurance industry dedicated to educating the public on critical healthcare issues, shaping health insurance legislation and raising the ethical standards of the industry.
