NAIFA-Chautauqua is a small association, but it’s awfully active, and on January 25 its members gathered just outside Jamestown for a roundtable luncheon with legislative representatives and NAIFA-NYS senior staff.  Topics of discussion at this very collegial event included the potential impacts of Department of Financial Services (DFS) regulations — cyber-security and a “best interest” standard for life insurance and annuities topped the list — as well as the Governor’s latest effort to establish a NYS-run retirement plan for the private sector.  Good news, though:  NAIFA-NYS could report significant progress on moving an association bill through the Assembly that would grant six (6) CE credits to active members of organizations like ours.  Thanks for the hospitality, Chautauqua.
