PAHU Awards


PAHU was recognized in 2014 for the Gold Certification Award as part of NAHU’s Chapter Certification Program, which is an ongoing program that recognizes excelling chapters throughout the calendar year.

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


The Leading Producers Round Table formed in 1942 to recognize the successful underwriters of Accident & Health Insurance. Today, the LPRT committee is committed to making LPRT the premier program for top Health, Disability, Long-Term Care and Worksite Marketing Insurance producers, carrier reps, carrier management, and general agency/agency managers.

The LPRT application measures sales achievements for January 1– December 31.  Application deadline is March 31st.

Triple Crown

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.
