Advisors specializing in Life & Annuities, Financial Advising & Investments, Health & Employee Benefits, Multiline Sales or any combination of these specialties have the opportunity to demonstrate the quality that is the mark of a true professional.
One award, the NAIFA Quality Award, reflects all the varied practice specialties of NAIFA members with a singular mark recognized by all. The NAIFA Quality Award is the mark of distinction to be recognized by not just your colleagues, but by your clients and companies. Be recognized for your commitment to excellence in service to your clients and your industry, in your pursuit of education and training and in your adherence to NAIFA’s Code of Ethics. It is time for all NAIFA members to display proudly the mark of NAIFA Quality.
If your practice spans more than one specialty area, the unique bonus multiplier credits allow you to build credit toward your production qualifications by combining production across specialties. A demonstrated commitment to professional education and association leadership also earns you qualification credit.
