National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors


Managing an association includes oversight of numerous programs and tasks. NAIFA provides guides and other resources to help with the day-to-day business of running an association and provides the information to make your member experience the best it can be.


Best Practices Workbook

The purpose of the NAIFA Best Practices Workbook is to strengthen each local association's capacity to deliver valued member services. It does this by providing the tools associations need to achieve excellence and earn recognition based on NAIFA's goal of providing critical member benefits built around four focus areas: Advocacy, Membership, Sales Training/Education and Professional Development, and Networking. The workbook gives association leaders an overview of the NAIFA resources available to achieve these goals as they are developed annually. The workbook includes annual goal setting, summaries of job responsibilities, a calendar model and much more.
