LSA Gets Audience with Oregon Law Makers
On March 8th our agent, Michael Welch RHU, REBC, will fly with a select group of Oregon insurance brokers to meet one on one with Oregon's seven most influential law makers.
The three day event is a part of "Capitol Conference", organized by the National Association of Health Underwriters. Its focus is to further a platform of reasonable, fiscally responsible and sustainable health care reform. Part of the event will include one on one meetings with Senators Merkley and Wyden and Representatives Defazio, Wu, Blumenauer, Schrader and Walden. Attached below is the agenda set forth by our national association. If you would like Mike to deliver a personal message specifically related to health care in Oregon please feel free to contact him directly.
