Advocacy

When it comes to political advocacy and protecting the interests of its members, NAIFA is one of the best in the business. NAIFA's advocacy, government relations and political action programs are collectively your single most important membership benefit.

Our talented and experienced staff and volunteers engage decision makers at every level of the legislative and regulatory system. NAIFA's government affairs staff monitors federal legislation and mobilizes resources to achieve the most favorable outcome for members and their clients. The constituent and staff lobbying effort is strengthened by both our industry-leading political action committee, known as theInsurance and Financial Advisors Political Action Committee (IFAPAC), and the Advisors Political Involvement Committee (APIC), our grassroots network of members who have developed relationships with virtually every member of Congress.

At the state level, our state associations work hand in hand with NAIFA's national law department to positively impact state legislation and regulation. They develop lobbying strategies, comment on key issues, implement uniform policies and participate in litigation. Our many successes have hinged on NAIFA's favorable relationships with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), the National Conference of Insurance Legislators (NCOIL), the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), and the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL).
