The Consulting House is excited to introduce the BA’s newsletter – “Take 5 For Wellness”. The information and insights shared are produced by fellow BA advisors, special contributors, and/or from committees within the BA. This month features our very own Allan Sabat, who was interviewed on the recent EI changes. We work collaboratively to share our expertise and experience to keep all our clients informed on topics that are top-of-mind. 

We hope you enjoy our improved newsletter and would appreciate any feedback.
