"Both the AALU and NAILBA Boards have always anticipated the future challenges and opportunities." - Kay Dempsey
Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 14, 2016
The Association for Advanced Life Underwriting (AALU) and the National Association of Independent Life Brokerage Agencies (NAILBA) have been engaged in an important partnership for over two years – through which AALU provides government affairs support for NAILBA and its membership, and NAILBA has been central in AALU’s efforts to engage more leaders from the independent distribution community. Both organizations recognize that, during these challenging times, associations representing distribution need to come together to drive more value, more efficiently.
“Both the AALU and NAILBA Boards have always anticipated the future challenges and opportunities,” said Kay Dempsey, AALU’s Government Affairs Committee Chair and former NAILBA Board member.
Building on this partnership, NAILBA has begun an important project to identify how it can most effectively represent independent distribution in the coming decade and beyond.
“We’re in a challenging environment, and real leadership stems from focusing on the things we can control – that’s exactly what we’re trying to do,” said George (Chip) Van Dusen IV, NAILBA 2016 Chairman and active AALU member.
During the next year, NAILBA will utilize outside resources to evaluate how it can most effectively represent its core constituency – including whether a stronger, more integrated relationship with AALU will help accomplish that mission.
Part of AALU’s core strategy for the next 12 months is to become a more inclusive organization in order to strengthen its ability to grow, promote, and advocate for the life insurance distribution community.
Both AALU and NAILBA leadership believe that a more unified effort between the two organizations will lead to better outcomes for their respective memberships, the industry, and most importantly, the American families and businesses who depend on life insurance products.
