I’m excited to share that the National Board has been collaborating on several fronts with sister associations and organizations that support the financial services profession to deliver expanded value to all stakeholders. We will make sure to keep you abreast of our communications and idea sharing. The Board also is currently engaged in strategic planning to support moving the association forward with a roadmap for the future.
Over the next few months, your leadership will be hitting the road to participate in a variety of industry conferences including AALU, Invest in Women and Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts in May; Conference of African American Financial Professionals in August; and NAIFA and the Women’s Advisor Summit in September. We hope to see you there! A few members of the National Board, including myself, recently returned from GAMA LAMP in Nashville and the Intercompany Long Term Care Insurance conference in Vegas. Please let us know of other industry events that you think we should consider attending.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for October 24-26 as we lead the way in Austin at our 2018 National Conference! I invite you to join more than 400 insurance and financial services professionals at one of the largest gatherings of women in the industry for three jam-packed days of networking, education and engagement. Keep an eye on your inbox for the program release and registration details.
Interested in giving back to emerging industry professionals? Mentoring is the perfect solution. I can personally say that there is nothing more gratifying than serving as a mentor and supporting a sister on her path to success. Enrollment is officially open for the Finish Strong session. Visit the National website for more information.
