The Lone Star Virtual Association of Health Underwriters is a virtual chapter for TAHU members who, due to geography, are not served by a local chapter. Just like other TAHU chapters, we host monthly membership meetings; we just do them remotely.
2021 marks the beginning of our new Virtual Chapter. This coincides with the dissolution of three great local chapters: El Paso AHU, West Texas, and San Angelo. These three chapters have done a great job over the years, but all decided that they did not have enough membership to maintain local membership meetings, especially at a time when meeting in person is dangerous. For that reason, these three chapters have decided to join forces and create one state-wide virtual chapter, giving members in West Texas and other areas an opportunity to attend regular online membership meetings. As one of the first virtual chapters in the nation, we’re hoping the Lone Star AHU can serve as a model for other states. If you live in an area that is not supported geographically by a local chapter, please consider joining today. We promise it will be a good decision.
Convenient Virtual Meetings
While in-person meetings are great (and we all wish they were possible right now), a virtual meetings offer a number of benefits as well. First, they’re more convenient — you can attend from wherever you are, don’t have to drive, and can work right up until the meeting begins.
Also, you might have the opportunity to hear from speakers who might otherwise have trouble travling to more remote chapters. Over time, the Lone Star Chapter will be scheduling speakers from outside Texas who you would normally only see at a national convention.
