HOLLYWOOD, FLA.–The National Association of Independent Life Brokerage Agencies has completed a strategic overhaul in the past year so that it could better focus on advocacy, education, networking, member benefits and membership growth, it was announced at the association’s annual meeting here.
The association also introduced a new program for brokerage principals and executives, called the NAILBA Executive Forum, chairman Gary S. Dworkin announced.
The new forum joins another program for agency staff, called the NAILBA Agency Management Institute, added Dworkin, who is a brokerage general agent with DAI/LifeMark, Rochester, N.H.
In addition, the association has created a Chairman’s Award to recognize outstanding volunteers.
Keynote speaker Dan Pink, Washington, D.C., stressed that, with today’s level of economic disruption, financial innovation is needed more than ever. Such work will be done by the right brain–artistic, inventive, innovative work–and it will be at a premium in the future, he predicted.
