Passion Powers People! If You're Passionate about NAIFA, Join us on July 31st

By Suzanne Carawan on Jul 18, 2024 6:14:55 PM

Join us for a special mid-summer meeting on Wednesday, July 31st at 12 pm eastern to focus on membership. With three Supreme Court decisions affecting our business, the DOL fiduciary-only rule, and the upcoming expiration of certain elements of the Tax and Jobs Cut Act, the time is now to expand our base so that we are prepared to welcome in new leaders at the state and federal levels, as well as take action when necessary. 

You've likely heard Van Mueller say, "There has never been a better day to be an insurance agent,"  but what you'll walk away saying is, "There has never been a better day to belong to NAIFA."  

Yes, I am passionate about NAIFA & Will Attend

What We'll Cover:

  • Membership Referral Program and What's in it for YOU
  • Summer Membership Challenge and What's in it for YOU
  • Rewards and Awards for Top Recruiters
  • Member-to-Member Programs that Deliver 10X on your Dues Investment
  • New Membership Benefits that Help You Prospect

Do you know someone who is passionate about NAIFA, but isn't in a formal leadership role (or might be ready to dip their toe in the water, but needs to start small?) Invite them to attend this session & ask them to be part of our Brand Ambassador Team!

Passion for people is what has powered NAIFA since 1890, and it's on all of us to ensure that we keep NAIFA strong!

Take the Next Step with Your Business, Attend the M&A Summit

By NAIFA Membership on Jul 18, 2024 5:59:58 PM

One-third of financial advisors are predicted to retire in the next 10 years, creating an opportunity for advisors looking to grow or sell their practice. Join NAIFA member, David Wood, for the "M&A Summit: Opportunity of a Lifetime", offered in-person and virtually throughout the rest of 2024. Industry professionals come together for an in-depth exploration of mergers and acquisitions and learn how to harness the wave of retiring advisors to capitalize on this opportunity. 

We're proud to support David in this Member-to-Member program because we've long heard our members struggle to understand how to value their business, options for succession planning, and practical tips for how to actually sell their business. Advisors in the growth mode of their business are looking to rapidly expand and understand that buying a book of business would catapult them to the next level, but typically don't know where to go or how to go about buying a business (or, how to afford it!) NAIFA is bringing members together to solve both sides of this problem and enabling our membership society to be a safe space for us to learn and work together to achieve win-win results.

This event is designed specifically for financial advisors looking to buy, sell, or merge practices. With a focus on strategic growth, you’ll gain essential tactics and insights on how to become acquisition-ready, leverage the M&A wave, and ensure your practice thrives amidst the evolving landscape of retiring advisors.

David is a recognized thought leader and speaker in the space and will cover the latest trends and best practices in mergers and acquisitions, offering you actionable strategies to maximize the value of your deals and secure a competitive edge in the market.

We will post weekly stats and rankings so you can see how you're doing! Remember, the $10 egift card for referring for a member still stands, so you could pay for your sunscreen, cocktail, hot dogs, AND help your chapter be #1 in the Nation!
