The inaugural Terry Headley Lifetime Defender Award will recognize a current NAIFA member who shows exemplary service to their profession, colleagues, and clients through their political advocacy and contributions to IFAPAC.
The deadline to nominate a NAIFA member for the award is Sept. 30.
The award is named after former NAIFA President Terry Headley, LUTCF, LIC, FSS. Headley is recognized as a key NAIFA contact for multiple members of both the Nebraska Congressional delegation and the state legislators over the years. He has served in leadership roles at the local, state, and national levels. He is also an IFAPAC Capitol Defender. Headley and former NAIFA President Robert Miller, M.A., M.S., are known as “IFAPAC Co-commanders in Chief” because their IFAPAC lifetime giving totals exceeded $100,000.
Nominees for NAIFA's inaugural Terry Headley Lifetime Defender Award should be current NAIFA members who exhibit Headley's commitment to advancing the legislative agendas of agents, advisors, and their clients. To nominate members, please submit the nominee’s name, chapter, a listing of all leadership positions they have held (advocacy positions will hold more weight in the decision-making progress), and all state legislators for whom the nominee is a contact. Include a statement with a description as to why this person is worthy of receiving the award.
Please submit your nominations to IFAPAC@NAIFA.org. The winner will be announced as part of the National Leadership Conference in December and presented by Robert Miller.
