NAIFA's integrated advocacy program that includes state, interstate, and federal advocacy is the largest and most comprehensive advocacy program in the industry. The critical element in our 130+ year advocacy track record of success remains, and will always be, in our members' participation--otherwise known as grassroots engagement.
We've introduced a new training course for members to gain skills and confidence in the advocacy process.
