Fox Valley Chapter

Mike Dietz
WAHU Fox Valley President

This is my third year as Fox Valley chapter president.  We have a great Fox Valley Chapter Board that helps me put together great local chapter meetings.  We try to put on one to two local events a year.  In the past we have done education with insurance companies, third party administrators, accountants, politicians and health care professionals. 

Our goal is to bring value to members of the Fox Valley Chapter.  Everyone is busy with his or her work.  There is always somewhere else we can be.  When we put together a local chapter meeting we need it to be worth a member’s time to attend.

So much information is sent out to agents via email with no personable contact from insurance company representatives.  I have found myself not reading a lot of these emails and missing valuable information on changes with insurance companies, the market place and Affordable Care Act rules.

As the marketplace changes, we see insurance companies not paying commission to agents and commission reduced.  We might need to evaluate how we as agents can transition from getting paid commissions to charging a fee for service like accountants and attorneys.

We look forward to seeing you at our next local Fox Valley Chapter meeting.
