NAIFA’s Advocacy Second to None in Insurance and Financial Services

An independent, third-party research firm has validated what every NAIFA member knows: The association’s advocacy efforts are unparalleled in the insurance and financial-services space.
 
The research arm of the National Journal recently surveyed more than 15,000 Capitol Hill players and others and concluded that NAIFA is viewed by policymakers as the most credible, valued and respected voice in the industry. No one comes close to rivaling NAIFA’s grassroots efforts, and the association’s PAC continues to be the largest among all insurance and financial-services groups. That ranking doesn’t include the additional work IFAPAC and the association’s state PACs do every day, helping represent advisors and the industry in all 50 state capitals.
 
Among the findings from the National Journal’s annual study on advocacy and reputation:
  • Companies need associations to advance advocacy. According to the study, associations are better positioned than their corporate peers to serve as the conduit between everyday Americans and Washington policymakers.
  • NAIFA is Uniquely Positioned to be the Constituent Voice.  Policymakers rate NAIFA’s grassroots efforts higher than all other financial services associations and prominent corporations engaged in Washington advocacy.
  • NAIFA’s Annual Day on the Hill has impact: Senior government officials engaged by National Journal praised NAIFA’s annual fly-in, its local grassroots organization, and ongoing representation of its state and local members.
More than 700 NAIFA members attended the 2017 Congressional Conference in May, with constituents from all 50 states and more than 90 percent of the nation’s Congressional districts. Every year, the NAIFA Congressional Conference displays the strength of NAIFA’s grassroots voice, which is critical to the success of the advisors and the clients they serve.
