On May 24th and 25th, approximately 600 NAIFA advisors flew into Washington DC to visit with lawmakers on Capitol Hill to advise them on how the decisions they make in Washington effect their constituents back home. The goal for this trip was to continue the conversation on how the new Department of Labor fiduciary standards will effect not only their business, but the ability to provide advice to the everyday consumer. NAIFA-Texas members met with over 18 Congressional members and their staffs to educate them on the value of life insurance, annuities, retirement savings, and employee benefits for over 75 million American families.
How can YOU get involved NOW? Schedule a follow up meeting in the district! Congress is about to enter recess, so all 36 members of the House of Representatives and both Senators will be back in Texas during June and July. Call the local office to set up a quick 10-15 minute meeting with them. When NAIFA is 600 members strong on Capitol Hill, it makes a huge impact. But, the meetings at home are just as important. Invite the member to your local luncheon, sign up to volunteer for their campaigns- these steps help make you the “go-to” contact when there is a question in Congress that affects YOUR business.
