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.
