John Nichols: ‘Keep NAIFA Strong’September 11th, 2013, Comments Off.
Dear Fellow Members,
NAIFA has been a defining experience during my career.
As I’ve grown, NAIFA has always stayed ahead of me. The support NAIFA provides in professional development, government relations and networking has never been more effective and necessary than it is today. NAIFA continues to help me build my business, protect my business and stand for ethical conduct.
This summer, after evaluating NAIFA’s short- and long-term finances, the Board of Trustees has determined that a dues increase of $25 is needed for NAIFA to remain the driving force in our industry that we’ve all come to expect.
This year’s Congressional Conference brought more than 1,000 NAIFA members to Washington, D.C., to meet with more than 90 percent of congressional offices. No one but NAIFA has that kind of influence.
With tax reform staring us in the face, our engagement to protect our cause must be paramount. It’s never been more important. We are all being called on to pitch in so NAIFA’s unique role in our industry can continue.
We need your support for the bylaw amendment to keep NAIFA strong. Contact your State and Local leadership – they will be representing you in San Antonio when the bylaw amendment will come up for a vote at the end of the month. You can read the details here, or contact me directly if you have any questions.
Together, we can keep NAIFA strong and financially sound. I look forward to growing with you for years to come.
