Training

  • Grassroots Training: NAIFA is proud to have the largest grassroots program in the financial services industry. Very few people have an in-depth understanding of how bills become law, how regulations are developed and enacted, and how leaders actually become elected. If you can relate to this description, then NAIFA's Grassroots Engagement Training Series course is for you.
    The three-part series will take you from the fundamentals of advocacy and step
    you through an at-your-own pace series to allow you to graduate to advanced concepts and develop skills that you can put into action with confidence.

Publications

  • Advocacy in Action Blog
  • GovTalk: Every member receives an in-depth analysis of policy and legislation underway that affects your practice each month.

Programs

  • Special Webinars: NAIFA members receive members-only debriefs with key staff and leaders on topics that require action by the membership.
  • Committees: Only NAIFA members can serve on Government Relations, IFAPAC, and Grassroots Committees at the state and national levels. Committees set the direction as to what issues NAIFA will tackle.

Events

  • Congressional Conference: NAIFA’s annual fly-in to Washington, D.C., called Congressional Conference, is crucial to our grassroots advocacy strategy. The event brings insurance and financial professionals together as a critical mass to advocate on behalf of their businesses, clients, consumers, and the insurance and financial services industry.
