I am very proud to have been selected as your Local President for 2015-2016. It is an honor and privilege to represent such a terrific organization.  This year our board will be focusing on rebuilding membership by providing superior member benefits, continuing our fantastic program offering, and strengthening our advocacy efforts.

Membership – We will continue to grow our organization led by our membership chair, Brian Young. We are currently the largest State of California local with nearly 300 members.

Member Benefits-Through our programming efforts led by Programs Chair and President Elect, Anissa Gurnee, we will strive to provide value through a variety of interesting topics that are relevant to every agent that attends our meetings. Every quarter we host a breakfast focused on dynamic sales ideas, a workshop where we roll up our sleeves and dive into advanced topics, and a mixer where we can just have a great time and network with our fellow members. We look forward to seeing you at our next event!

Advocacy – Led by our Political Involvement and PAC chairs Tim Brock and Troy Wirth, we will strive to make our local leaders aware of our organization and its objectives.  We meet with local legislators frequently throughout the year in district and will continue to make our voices and concerns heard. NAIFA is the most active voice in protecting the products and services you to provide to your clients.

I urge you to participate and get involved in our organization and support the industry you represent.  Please consider bringing a guest to our events as well to expose them to the many benefits a NAIFA membership offers.  As always, we welcome your feedback and any way we can improve and bring more value. I look forward to seeing you at one of our events and making 2015/16 the greatest NAIFA OC year ever.

Thanks again for your support!
