Sacramento, CA (MPG) -  Samantha Siders recently received the Emerging Leader Award at the National Association of Health Underwriters’ (NAHU) 87th Annual Convention and Exhibition in Orlando, FL.

Samantha was recognized for this award that honors NAHU members with less than five years in the industry who have made significant contributions in connection with association volunteer service at the local, state and national level. Her commitment of time, talent and finances to the advancement of the association and health insurance shows an impressive understanding of health insurance for one so new to the industry.

“The leadership of NAHU members has a far-reaching impact on providing for the healthcare needs of individuals, families and business in their communities. We are grateful for Samantha’s leadership and recognize her for those efforts with this well-deserved award,” said NAHU CEO Janet Trautwein.

Samantha has served on the Sacramento Association of Health Underwriters (SAHU) Board for 4 years, currently leading the Vanguard Council. She is the Regional Sales Manager for Choice Administrators, where she has worked for the past 4 ½ years. Samantha lives in Shingle Springs with her husband, Casey, and 2 ½ year old daughter Kendyl. The Sider family will be welcoming a baby boy in January.

“Samantha Siders exemplifies the dedication that provides the best opportunities for our members through their leadership and dedication,” said Helen Ornellas, president of Sacramento Association of Health Underwriters. “This year, she organized networking events, volunteered with our local charities and hosted seminars to further our members’ educational efforts. These projects and many others have set a standard of excellence in the health insurance industry that we are proud to represent.”
