Message from Jennifer Kluge, CEO, MBPA


We are extremely sad to inform you that on February 14, 2015, Gary Marcicano, COO of the MBPA, died unexpectedly. Gary was a vibrant leader of our Association and we will miss him tremendously. He touched thousands of lives of our members, the business community and local charities. A GoFundMe campaign has been established to assist his family with unexpected expenses at www.gofundme.com/mgabw4. Visitation will be Tuesday, Feb. 17 from 3 – 9 p.m., with an 11:30 a.m. funeral on Wednesday, Feb. 18 at Wujek-Calcaterra & Sons in Sterling Heights (586-826-8550, www.wujekcalcaterra.com). Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time for the MBPA team.

Registration for Win by Losing contest starts Feb. 16.




Visit bcbsm.com/yourhealth to learn more about this weight-loss challenge.

Looking to start the new year with a win?

Join us for the 12th round of Win by Losing, our free weight-loss contest. The nine-week challenge kicks off next month.

While you motivate each other to lose weight, your team will compete against other Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan and Blue Care Network customers across the state. Your company will be entered into one of four categories, based on the number of participants. There will be one winner per category. Winners are determined based on the percentage of weight loss from the total starting weight.

Winning teams receive a trophy, Win by Losing T-shirts and the coveted bragging rights.


Important dates

* Feb. 16: Registration begins at the Win by Losing website.

* Feb. 23: The contest kicks off.

* Feb. 27: Submit your team’s total pounds lost for the week by 5 p.m.

But, more than that, your employees can use Win by Losing to fulfill their personal health goals. Since we launched the contest in 2009, more than 79,000 pounds have been lost.


Get your team registered

Registration is easy. Once registration starts on Feb. 16, have your team captain visit bcbsm.com/yourhealth and submit:

* Your company name

* The number of participating employees

* Your team’s total starting weight. This is used as the starting point from which we’ll track your team’s progress. Your captain will submit your total weight loss weekly.

During the contest, use the online Win by Losing tool kit to encourage your team to stay on track and ahead of the competition. If you have any questions about getting started, contact Patti Hoerner at 313-448-1066 or WinbyLosing@bcbsm.com.

I was first introduced to the MPBA when I worked for Windstream Communications, a fortune 500 telecom company, who designated me as their point-of-contact member. I've since gone to work for a locally owned IT firm and the first thing I did when I got here was to get them a membership with the MBPA. There are so many benefits to a small business owner. I am not an owner but I am in sales for an owner and the networking opportunities alone make membership worthwhile for me. I have met several people at the monthly Live@Five event that I work with on a weekly basis now.
