Successful Fundraiser by SAAHU

The South Atlanta Association of Health Underwriters had a successful turnout at their most recent fundraiser. Oliver Halle and Associates came and spoke to agents as well as professionals in the south Atlanta area, about allowing their employees to take "The Harder Right". The symposium was about ethics, and how easy it is for good people to get swallowed up by making a series of small, but bad choices. It showed how these decisions can have a "snowball effect". The association used some of the proceeds to donate to the Fayette Samaritans.

SAAHU was founded in 2003 to serve the needs of health insurance professionals on the south side of Atlanta. It is an organization that provides opportunities for agents and vendors to network and to learn about new laws and products that are useful to their clients. It also gives health insurance professionals an opportunity to give back to their community.

SAAHU's first donation to the Samaratins was Thanksgiving 2003. This started a tradition of annual donating that has continued through Thanksgiving of 2005. When the budget was updated in March of 2006 as a result of the fundraiser, the board agreed to make a special donation. The recipients again, were The Fayette Samaritans and, the Cystic Fibrosis Reaching Out Foundation.

Each year the donations have increased as the association has grown in size through membership contributions and fund raising efforts. The South Atlanta Association of Health Underwriters believes that giving back to the community is an important part of their work.

Anyone involved in the field of health insurance is welcome to join the association and attend the meetings. Visit for more information.
