The Bulletin - Issue # 6 - April 2017

Welcome from the President

Welcome to this month’s issue of The Bulletin. Things have been developing well for IAHGM since the start of the year and we’re now in a strong position as an established, credible association, with a membership base in the hundreds.

As well as serving our members, IAHGM was also designed to benefit the hotel GM sector as a whole. Recognising and rewarding industry talent is one of our main objectives and these aims have inspired us to create an elite network of the world’s top 100 Hotel GMs.

Those chosen will be invited to attend an exclusive annual networking event, as well as benefiting from the associated prestige of being recognised globally, as a leader in their field. This is one of many initiatives we are working on to enhance the profile of General Managers and support them in their careers and we look forward to sharing news of the “Top 100 Club” when the names are announced in the coming months.

Leon Larkin

President, IAHGM

Will you be One of the World’s Top 100?

We are engaging the assistance of numerous industry sources, as well as our own Board of Governors, to nominate based on the following criteria: industry reputation, profile and influence, innovation, past achievements, customer and employee feedback and overall business acumen. There is no requirement for a GM nominee to be a member of the Association, and we look forward to sharing news of the Top 100 Club when the successful nominees are announced in the coming months.

INSIGHT:

Why Expats Need Life Insurance

From IAHGM provider Clements Worldwide, the leading provider of insurance solutions for expatriates

While some insurance policies, such as car insurance or health insurance, are mandatory by law, others are just as important even if they’re not a requirement. One of those which is often overlooked is international life insurance.  A proper life insurance policy can provide important funds to ensure the future of your family.

Clements Term Life offers an exclusive policy for expats with borderless coverage and no medical underwriting up to USD 500,000. The policy is also completely portable, meaning that the policy will move with you if you relocate. Members of IAHGM and IAHE also benefit from exclusive discounts on the Clements Term Life policy.

Here’s how a life insurance policy could benefit you and your family:

Provide Financial Stability

The aftermath of a family tragedy can be a tough and uncertain period for all involved. It can take quite a long time for a family to fiscally settle after the death of the essential income earner.

With a life insurance policy, your family will have the funds needed to manage its finances during this unsettling time. This can also give your family the time needed to secure a stable wage, allow your family to stay in its present home, or supplant lost retirement funds.

Help Ensure a Bright Future for Your Children

As an expat you spend your time overseas in new and unfamiliar territories, meaning there is a higher risk something unforeseeable could happen. Obtaining a life insurance plan that meets the needs of you and your family can provide essential funds following a sudden tragedy.

One of the main concerns will no doubt be your children’s wellbeing. The right type of policy can help cover scholastic fees meaning your child’s education continues as planned, and can even cover weddings and other important events in your children’s lives.
