Keynote Speakers

Sunday General Session

Sunday afternoon’s General Session will feature political personalities Donna Brazile and Anna Navarro.

Donna Brazile is a veteran Democratic political strategist, adjunct professor, author, syndicated columnist, television political commentator, vice chair of voter registration and participation at the Democratic National Committee, and former interim national chair of the DNC, as well as the former chair of the DNC’s Voting Rights Institute. She is also the author of the best-selling memoir Cooking with Grease: Stirring the Pots in American Politics and an on-air contributor to CNN and ABC, where she regularly appears on This Week. She has made two cameo appearances on CBS’s The Good Wife, and most recently, she appeared on Netflix’s House of Cards. After all, acting, as she will say, is the key to success in politics. Brazile was named in O magazine’s first-ever list of 20 “remarkable visionaries,” and Washingtonian magazine named her among its “100 Most Powerful Women,” while Essence magazine listed her as one of the “Top 50 Women in America.” Brazile also received the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s highest award for political achievement. Aside from working for the full recovery of her native New Orleans, Brazile’s passion is encouraging young people to vote, working within the political system in order to strengthen it, and running for public office. In her presentations, she addresses our current political environment, hot-topic legislation, campaigns, and voting.

Ana Navarro is a well-known Republican strategist and a political analyst for CNN and CNN en Español. She is also a political contributor on ABC’s The View. The Miami New Times named her a “Republican power-consultant,” and the Tampa Bay Times called her “a sought-after voice in Republican politics and an adviser for any presidential hopeful,” saying, “with confidants Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio she is poised to play a big role in the GOP response to immigration reform and Hispanic outreach.” Respected on both sides of the aisle for her straight shooting and candor, Navarro frequently appears in the media, sought after by Meet the Press, Bill Maher’s Real Time, Anderson Cooper 360, and The View, to name a few. “Ana speaks the truth, and she is willing to speak the truth to power without reservation…She has the ear of lots of elected officials,” said Republican consultant Brett O’Donnell. She is in touch with the political issues people are talking about, and in presentations, she discusses the latest hot button issues in politics, giving audiences an insider’s view of the upcoming elections and a roadmap for where the country is headed. Navarro most recently served as the national Hispanic co-chair for Governor Jon Huntsman’s 2012 campaign and the national co-chair of John McCain’s Hispanic Advisory Council in 2008, where she was also the national surrogate for the McCain 2008 campaign. She has played a role in several federal and state races in Florida. She served on Governor Jeb Bush’s transition team in 1998 and was his first director of immigration policy in the Executive Office of the Governor.

New! NAHU Benefis Account Manager Certification Course

$396 members, $595 non-members

Monday, June 27 from 8:30 a.m. – 10:45 a.m.

Featuring: Carol Taylor, D&S Agency & Jessica Waltman, Forward Health Consulting

The role of account manager has become increasingly important since the passage of the ACA. It is the account manager who keeps the processes moving forward through the service provided to clients. Account managers have taken on many more of the duties that were traditionally reserved for producers and are critical in compliance efforts. The new NAHU training ensures professional success for the account manager and gives peace of mind to the producer that clients will be taken care of professionally and skillfully.

The purpose of the Benefits Account Manager Certification course is to provide account manager professionals with an understanding of the complex and critical role an account manager plays in the health and benefits arena. The training will provide instruction to ensure that students understand the key technical components of benefit plans and are better prepared to counsel their clients on the various products as well as key instruction to assist them in client compliance. A multi-topic curriculum, accompanied by case studies and a study guide will be used as a learning tool to help students prepare for their final exam.
