President’s address…

Welcome to NAIFA Arizona!

Thank you for the honor of being your President for 2020.

Last year, we merged the NAIFA chapters into one united group.  Because of this, I am excited to say, we are over 400 members strong.  For my term as President in 2020, it is my intention to understand the needs of our members and insure we are providing you with the necessary resources to improve your skills, enable you to grow personally and professionally and opportunities to connect with others in our industry.

I have been a member of NAIFA since I opened my Allstate insurance agency in 1996 because I knew the importance of being in a community with my peers. NAIFA is where I turn when I am looking for answers to industry questions, build my confidence to expand my business, and be inspired by successful industry leaders.

I am looking forward to connecting with as many members as possible in 2020 to understand how NAIFA Arizona can serve your needs better.

Thank you for being a member of NAIFA Arizona.
