Our NAIFA Chautauqua association kicked off its 2017-2018 year with a Board meeting and luncheon on Tuesday, September 19th. NAIFA-NYS’ Legislative Director, Mark Yavornitzki, was pleased to drive out to Jamestown to renew the state’s ties with this small but very active local. Mark spoke about how the state is becoming a stronger voice within the NAIFA federation and in Albany on behalf of New York life insurance agents and advisors. He talked about internal changes at NAIFA-NYS that represent a new, positive era in the association’s long history. And he and meeting attendees discussed certain regulatory and political challenges unique to New York. Congratulations, Chautauqua! We were glad to visit with you.
