The Center is available to NAIFA members and members of NAIFA’s advocacy partner organizations, as well as any other members of the insurance and financial services profession.

“NAIFA’s Advocacy Center is a resource available to all financial professionals, empowering them to exert their political influence and join with NAIFA’s grassroots army to encourage public policy favorable to agents, advisors, and their clients,” said NAIFA CEO Kevin Mayeux. “Many NAIFA members view political influence and action as important parts of their jobs. They promote the best interests of consumers with members of Congress and state legislators, just as they do when helping clients achieve financial security and prosperity.”
Users of the NAIFA Advocacy Center can:
- Contact federal legislators on issues important to the ability of financial professionals to serve their clients;
- Sign up to be grassroots contacts for legislators and join NAIFA’s advocate network;
- Join their voices with thousands of other NAIFA members through IFAPAC to support candidates for state and federal office who understand the value advisors and agents play in securing America's financial future;
- Learn more about the bills in the House and Senate that touch the insurance and financial services industry.
“Overreaching laws and regulations can place barriers between American families and the financial professionals who provide the products, services, and guidance they need to navigate complex financial challenges,” Mayeux added. “It is critical for every agent and advisor to be involved in shaping political decisions that impact their livelihoods and those of their clients. The NAIFA Advocacy Center is the toolbox they need to be involved.”
