Membership in NAILBA is a direct representation of an organization’s dedication to independent brokerage ideals. All NAILBA member agencies work to promote the best interest of the consumer, who may purchase life insurance, and other related products, through a variety of sources. NAILBA membership application approvals require the consent of a majority of the association’s Board of Directors.
"We are delighted to welcome IntelliQuote to membership in NAILBA. NAILBA member agencies work in the ultimate best interest of the insurance consumer, and IntelliQuote’s commitment to this ideal and the insurance brokerage industry is clear and well documented," said Raymond S. Phillips, Jr., CLU, LTCP, Chairman of NAILBA and President of Pittsburgh-based The Brokers Source, Ltd.
A traditionally wholesale focused organization, NAILBA recognizes that independent distribution can take many forms, including direct to consumer. A top rated, direct to consumer online life insurance agency, IntelliQuote is pleased to have the opportunity to help NAILBA connect with this emerging market segment. As more and more consumers choose to research and even purchase life insurance online, agencies and industry organizations alike are taking strides to address this shift in consumer behavior.
"We have greatly respected the work of NAILBA for years," said Gary Lardy, President and CEO of IntelliQuote. "We are honored to join this organization and we look forward to sharing our unique perspective on consumer direct life insurance sales."
In addition to advocating for positive change in the insurance industry, NAILBA supports philanthropic organizations. The NAILBA Charitable Foundation contributes funding to small, well-run charities in neighborhoods nationwide and encourages volunteerism among NAILBA members. For more than 10 years the NAILBA Charitable Foundation has worked to enhance the lives of those less fortunate, with a special emphasis on helping children in need.
"We find it particularly interesting that we have the opportunity to work with an organization with such a rich history of charitable contribution," added Lardy.
The entire IntelliQuote family is proud to join the ranks of many of their respected peers as members of this prestigious association. As NAILBA members IntelliQuote hopes to not only shed light on the emerging direct consumer market segment, but to contribute to the NAILBA Foundation.
