Our Buffalo association continued its tradition of successful legislative breakfasts on January 25, when nearly 60 members, non-members, legislators and staff, and NAIFA-NYS representatives gathered in an elegant ballroom at Salvatore’s Italian Gardens in Depew.  Senior NAIFA-NYS government relations staff briefed attendees on the legislative and regulatory challenges facing life insurance agents in New York State – including the Governor’s proposal for a state-run retirement plan for the private sector, a new “best interest” standard for life insurance and annuities and, among other topics, the ever confusing DFS cyber-security regulation.  Attendees also heard about our efforts to shepherd through the Assembly a NAIFA-NYS bill that would grant six (6) credits for active participation in NAIFA-NYS and similar organizations.  Congratulations, Buffalo!
