S. Roger Dominey, CLU, CFP, ChFC

  

We're well into the month of May and we're about to hold our Annual Meeting on MAY 28th. It's important that you attend because we'll be holding our election of Officers and Directors for the 2014-2015 Association Year, and we'll also be voting on some bylaws changes.  Your opinion as a member is important to us and complete details can be found in this newsletter below. We'll also welcome TV anchor Donna Deegan as a guest speaker.

 

Our newly installed Board of Directors will be hard at work through the summer break in planning for our meeting programs. As always, NAIFA-Jacksonville will provide top-quality speakers and a strong line-up of CE courses for our members. Be sure to check our website at www.naifa-jacksonville.org for the latest updates.

    

Have a great month, and I look forward to seeing you on May 28th. 

  

Roger

2014 NAIFA Congressional Conference

On May 20th-21st, 2014, NAIFA will be holding its 2014 Congressional Conference with a similar goal - to establish and cultivate relationships with lawmakers, to share the expertise of NAIFA members, and educate them on the value of life insurance, annuities, retirement savings, and employee benefits for 75 million American families.
 
Please register today and join us in this important effort to educate lawmakers about the value of your business to your clients!

Your Support of IFAPAC is Appreciated!

IFAPAC Please consider a contribution to YOUR Political Action Committee!

The Insurance and Financial Advisors Political Action Committee (IFAPAC) is a term used to describe collectively the PAC sponsored by NAIFA at the federal level and the PACs sponsored by each state association. Each PAC is a fund that supports the campaigns of candidates for public office who understand issues important to insurance agents and financial advisors. IFAPAC's goal is to help the associations advance the legislative and regulatory interests of the members of NAIFA. While any U.S. citizen can contribute to IFAPAC, only members of local NAIFA associations may be solicited to do so. Contributions must be voluntary. Contributions are not tax deductible for federal income tax purposes.

Of approximately 4,600 political action committees registered with the Federal Election Commission, IFAPAC ranks in the top tier. IFAPAC is the largest insurance PAC in the country. In the last election cycle, the national IFAPAC contributed approximately $1.1 million to federal candidates and committees.
