Happy New Year!! I hope you all are experiencing an awesome start to the year!
It’s a fact of life: there’s strength in numbers! Perhaps nowhere else is this tenet more critical than to an organization such as NAIFA. Robust membership is vital to the protection of your career, your client’s best interests, and our industry.
First, and most importantly, THANK YOU for your membership! Without you we have no voice on issues in Tallahassee and Washington, and no one to tell the story of NAIFA. We appreciate you and value your continued membership!
You may recall last year’s race to finish # 1 nationally in NAIFA membership. Led by the double-digit recruiting efforts of members like Don Brown, Scott Spicer, Dan Jeanneret and Joe Chalom, the excitement was created, the momentum was built, and the efforts of members all across the state carried us to # 1!!
I said it then, and I’ll say it again: WHAT A THRILL!!! We set the goal, accepted the challenge, and put in the effort to reach # 1. I hope you’re as proud of that accomplishment as I am.
New Year – New Goal (sort of). As we kick off 2015, we’re halfway to the finish line and, once again, we’re in a race to the finish. Our goal for June 30, 2015 is very similar to last year’s: grow our membership and finish # 1 in the NAIFA federation. The target: 2,604 members. Mike LaPorte has set the pace by recruiting 17 new members – and I know he’s not done! But Mike can’t do it alone – he needs our help. Can you help? Absolutely!
ACT NOW! The first ten members to recruit 5 or more new members
before March 9 will receive a check for $350!
Winners will be announced at the Legislative Day On the Hill in Tallahassee on March 10.
You don’t have to be present to win – but we sure hope you’ll make it!
** New members and sponsor names must be listed in NAIFA’s Online Service Center.
So keep track of your new members. **
To help you in your efforts please click HERE to see all that NAIFA offers. Waaay too much to list in a message, but trust me, there’s something for everyone! For roughly $44 per month it’s the best package of benefits and career protection out there!!
Also, you can click HERE for a list of lapsed members in your area. Many probably don’t even realize their membership has lapsed! Please be aware that some of the names listed may already be renewing. If that happens thank them and move on to the next one.
It’s easy to sign up members, just go online at www.naifa.org and click the “Join/Renew” button at the very top of the home page. Simple!
Reality check: June 30 will arrive much faster than we think. Please reach out to that colleague or associate in your office, in the agency next door, or the firm down the street and tell them the story of NAIFA. Tell them what we do, why we do it, and why they need to belong.
Thank you for taking the time to read this – and for taking action act now!
LET’S FINISH THIS RIGHT!!
LET’S FINISH STRONG!!
LET’S FINISH #1!!
All my best,
Paul S. Brawner, AIP, QAS
Chief Executive Officer
