The 2020 NAIFA-NYS legislative breakfast tour began, as it has traditionally, in Buffalo – one of the state’s strongest local associations. State and regional leadership, including NAIFA-NYS President and NAIFA-Buffalo past president Phil Held, spoke to the importance of NAIFA membership and advocacy. Senior NAIFA-NYS government relations staff briefed members, non-members, and state legislators and staff on critical public policy concerns, including next steps for the NAIFA-NYS continuing education (CE) credit bill and agent/broker implementation of the Regulation 187 “best interest” standard. Association representatives also highlighted the importance of NAIFA’s new Life & Annuity Certified Professional (LACP) certification, including what NYS is doing to promote it, and unveiled the NYS-exclusive opportunity for company-level Associate Membership. Thank you, Buffalo (and thanks for keeping the snow at bay)!
