NAIFA Video Marks Upcoming 100-year Anniversary of Tax-Free Life Insurance Benefits
A new video released during NAIFA’s 2012 Career Conference and Annual Meeting offers a history of NAIFA’s important role in ensuring that American families and businesses receive tax-free death benefits and inside build up on their insurance products.
NAIFA’s advocacy work is keeping me in business.
There is no other organization that is on watch for us the way NAIFA is. NAIFA gives me the opportunity to interact with legislators on the state and federal level. The amount I pay for my NAIFA membership is not in proportion to what I receive – in advocacy work alone.
The Importance of COLI Best Practices
A recent article in Forbes magazine points out the potential tax liabilities for companies that take out employer-owned life insurance, also known as corporate-owned life insurance (COLI), policies on employees without following notification and consent requirements laid out by federal law.
NAIFA is the only organization that protects what we do and how we do it.
No organization can replace what NAIFA does for me.
Thank you, NAIFA
Perhaps the greatest benefit of what we all do is the friendship that grows from the professional relationships formed through NAIFA.

The four recipients of the 2012 Four Under Forty Award demonstrate what advisors can achieve with dedication and commitment to their industry, and professional participation in NAIFA,” noted Dr. Susan Waters, CAE, NAIFA’s CEO. “All of them have careers that are firmly on the path to continued growth and success.

He has spoken at industry gatherings, acquired a couple of agencies, and improved the operational efficiency of his firm to enhance his clients’ experiences. Here are his thoughts on what it takes to move ahead.
“From advocacy to member benefits, NAIFA has been my best career investment.”
NAIFA’s opportunities cover so much of what we do, that even though I’ve been a member a long time I still find benefits that are new and useful.
“I realize now more than ever before the importance of NAIFA.”
It was an honor for me to participate in the recent APIC Influence Training in Washington DC. I thought the entire program was extremely valuable and helped me to understand things so much better.
“NAIFA is the only group that represents everything we do – no one else can compete”
NAIFA is the voice in Washington that protects our business, products and clients. I have a lot of different responsibilities in my office, but that’s one part of my business I can’t do without NAIFA.
In Step with a Winner: Jennifer Alford
Catching up with Jennifer Alford, one of the 2006 winners of Advisor Today’s Four Under Forty Awards, was not easy, but it was well worth the effort. In a few short years, Alford’s practice has expanded and she is giving more of her time to NAIFA and its Young Advisors Team.
In Step with a Winner-Brion Collins
NAIFA is important for developing contacts and networking. It helps with tactical aspects such as how we can do things better, as well as with the art of selling, which is part skillset and part motivation.
NAIFA Contributes to My Success Every Day
We would all be out of business without the daily advocacy efforts of NAIFA and its members. No other insurance industry organization has that type of strength in grassroots political influence.
“Because of NAIFA, I grew my business and became a better advisor”
Without NAIFA, I would not have had the leadership experience, the business growth opportunities and the personal friendships I have enjoyed throughout my career.
