NAIFA’s Congressional Conference is set for May 22-23 in Washington, D.C. It’s not too late to register to participate in this program that establishes and grows the constituent-lawmaker relationships that protect the rules that allow middle America to safeguard their families’ and business’ financial futures.

A key goal of the Congressional Conference is to build and nurture relationships between NAIFA members and their Senators and Members of the House of Representatives. These relationships are at the heart of NAIFA’s amazingly effective advocacy program. The 500+ NAIFA members/Congressional Conference participants who will visit their Members of the House of Representatives and their Senators on May 23 are at the forefront of this all-important effort. 

On tap on the afternoon of May 22 will be presentations from two key Members of the House of Representatives, Reps. Brad Schneider (D-IL) and Rep. Monica De La Cruz (R-TX). Both will describe how important relationships with their constituents are to them and to their decision-making. They will also comment on the challenges and opportunities now in front of the 118th Congress.

Also on the May 22 agenda are issues briefings with NAIFA staff and lobbyists, “how-to” lobbying tips, and networking with colleagues and friends. Then, on May 23, Conference participants will fan out all over Capitol Hill to educate lawmakers and their staff on emerging and active issues that matter to the long-term financial security of their clients and themselves. 

Timing is key this year. Currently, government officials are projecting the need to raise the statutory debt limit by early June to avoid an economy-wrecking default by the U.S. This is now and almost certainly will still be all-consuming. Ways to address the country’s fiscal issues—including whether to raise revenue via tax increases as well as substantial spending cuts—are at the top of every lawmaker’s mind. NAIFA’s messages, via constituents, couldn’t come at a better time.

It's not too late to register to participate in the Congressional Conference if you haven’t already. More information and registration for the Congressional Conference on May 22-23 here in Washington, DC. can be found at https://conference.naifa.org/2023.
