NAIFA posts content from P+P Conference

Dear NAIFA members:

I am pleased to present to you an online sampling of the 2017 NAIFA Performance+Purpose Conference. Our volunteers and leaders planned an exciting program of speakers, sessions and networking opportunities in Orlando, but as you know, Hurricane Irma had other plans. Our thoughts are with those impacted by Irma and Harvey, and the NAIFA Hurricane Relief Fund continues to accept donations to support our fellow members in those affected areas.

On Sept. 10, the NAIFA Board announced its new officers and trustees for 2017-2018. The Board also voted unanimously to convene a special meeting of the NAIFA National Council on May 22, 2018, in Washington, D.C., on the first day of NAIFA’s Congressional Conference. The Council will consider a revision of NAIFA’s bylaws to reflect the direction of the NAIFA 20/20 strategic plan in general and the recommendations of the Quality Member Experience Task Force in particular. Look for future communications on NAIFA 20/20.

In the meantime, please visit for a glimpse of 2017 P+P, including:

NAIFA has come a long way in two years. We’re expanding our services to enhance the professionalism of advisors throughout the country. We’re reaching new markets, having unparalleled impact on public policy, and deepening and enriching our relationships with companies and other key players in the insurance and financial services space.

That’s progress!

As the largest organization in our industry, NAIFA’s success will ensure that our members are protecting the needs of 75 million American families, and we will remain the strong and effective voice in Washington and in every state capitol across the country.

It is my honor and privilege to serve as your NAIFA 2017-18 President, and I look forward to working together on some amazing things that will benefit those we serve.

Thank you,

Keith Gillies, CFP, CLU, ChFC
