On August 18, 1966, NAIFA formed the Insurance and Financial Advisors Political Action Committee (IFAPAC) as a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization. Then known as LUPAC, it was created "to engage in voter registration and get-out-the-vote campaigns, compile voting records of individual members of Congress, and implement nonpartisan courses designed to stimulate citizen involvement in politics," according to NAIFA's magazine at the time. The PAC also solicited "contributions to aid selected Congressional candidates," the publication said.

It’s not just luck that makes NAIFA the leading political advocacy association for insurance and financial professionals in the United States. It takes hard work, a dedicated and informed membership and strong leadership throughout our association chapters. Today’s NAIFA Leadership Blueprint training focused on advocacy to ensure that chapter volunteer leaders have the training and resources they need to empower their states’ NAIFA members and build on NAIFA’s advocacy strength.
