Greater Metro Region (GMR) on Long Island held a wonderfully successful “Welcome Back to NAIFA” Educational & Networking Event on January 30 – part of the association’s effort to bring back lapsed members, engage existing members, and show potential recruits (of all ages) what NAIFA has to offer.  The event, held at the Heritage Club at Bethpage, boasted more than 80 attendees and vendors and expert speakers.  Educational sessions focused on the game-changing Regulation 187 “best interest” standard (specifically, what producers must do to comply) and on how carriers are updating their indexed annuity products in response to Reg 187, changes to mortality tables, and other concerns.  Two CE credits were available; a cocktail reception and buffet dinner concluded the event.  There was plenty of camaraderie – and looking forward to the next GMR-Long Island happening.

Thank you to the generous event sponsors:  American National, John Hancock, Lincoln Financial Group, National Life, Forest Hills Financial Group/Guardian, and Jackson National.
