The National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors has created the NAIFA Partners for Advocacy program.

The program will encourage companies and agencies to support legislation that NAIFA members back by giving eligible employees a voice in discussions about bills and regulations that might affect the insurance and financial services industries, according to NAIFA, Falls Church, Va.

Corporate non-managerial employees of home offices, broker-dealers, non-producing agency employees and support staff can join the program, NAIFA says.

The program will act on state initiatives as well as federal bills and regulatory proposals.

Participants will receive an online newsletter and e-mail alerts to let them know “when and how to make their voices heard,” NAIFA says.

The enrollment fee is $50 per participant per year and will be paid by the sponsoring insurance company or agency, NAIFA says.
