NAIFA-Arizona Membership Brochure

We find ourselves at a time when our industry is undergoing tremendous change. There is one and only one organization whose sole purpose is to enhance and maintain a favorable business environment for the insurance industry. It is imperative that all agents and managers support NAIFA as it works to preserve their livelihood. Failure to do so is tantamount to “career malpractice”.

The first organization I joined 16 years ago as I entered our business was the National Association of Insurance and Financial Planners. Today it would be hard to measure the effect that my membership has had on my career, because it has been immeasurable. To have talked one-on-one with John Savage and many industry greats will never be forgotten. Every agent who believes in our business and receives income from the sale of insurance should be a member of Arizona ALU.

I have been a member of the association since the day I entered our business and was a founding member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors. NAIFA-Arizona has contributed immeasurably to my success in many ways and continues to be a force for good in behalf of agents and the public.

It should go without saying that all agents become members of NAIFA-Arizona. There is no other organiza-tion that represents the agent and our industry so professionally and so well.

I have been a member of the NAIFA-Arizona since I started in the business 16 years ago. Membership in the association helps me to keep current on legislative issues as well as keeping me abreast of new trends in our industry.
