Thank you from all of us at NAWIC Houston.  We look forward to seeing you and wish you all a very blessed and safe holiday season.

Don’t forget to RSVP! DAVE & BUSTERS AND THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT. WHAT?

 

Sometimes the new healthcare laws can feel like a big game.  Trying to understand how we fit into these new laws can be frustrating – just like trying to hit the 100 in Skee-Ball but ending up with the 10 spot instead.  Time to understand the game!

Join us for a fun night at Dave & Buster’s as we hear from Laurie Nicolai, President of IMG Benefits Group.  Laurie will be sharing with us the ins/outs and in-betweens of the Affordable Care Act and how it impacts you as an individual and your company’s benefits package in 2016.  And of course we will have a lot of fun in the process!  Reserve your space today!

Cost is $35 – Dinner Served
