“Maeghan brings a wealth of experience and insurance and financial services industry knowledge to the NAIFA advocacy team,” said Boyle. “As the only producer association advocating for financial professionals and consumers on the federal level and in all 50 states, NAIFA works with legislators and regulators on a full slate of issues across the country. With Maeghan’s energy and expertise, collaborating with the other members of our national advocacy team and our state-level advocates, we are poised to continue NAIFA’s strong track record of advocacy success.”
