Participant Feedback

2016 Congressional Conference Participants said this about their experience:

If you have ever doubted why you belong to NAIFA or if you still think you don't need to belong to NAIFA, this conference is for you!!  Within the first hour of being in DC the information about how our industry is changing was all around us.  It is so great to see our advocacy team in action! - Heather Lindsley, LUTCF, Green Bay, WI
It was by far the neatest experience I’ve had.  It was my first time participating but also my first time in DC!  It was really moving how in our visits with legislators the NAIFA members poured their hearts out for their clients.   I felt empowered leaving this.  I’m not a NAIFA member yet (waiting for next pay period) but there is no question it is the exact group I want to be a part of. - Richelle Hopkins, Scottsdale, AZ
AWESOME job to all of you on this week’s Congressional Conference.  I heard tremendously positive feedback from our members and our elected officials . . .  We had a huge impact, and I want to personally thank everyone for your involvement and making things happen in a tremendous way.  Let’s keep the momentum going! - Brock T. Jolly, CFP, CLU, ChFC, CLTC, CASL, CFBS, McLean, VA
I had five first time attendees that came away with changed perceptions to new realities.  My representative was "encouraged" by their attendance on the Hill.  Great to have them step up. - Elaine Fremling, CLU, Fargo, ND
It is a great experience and it is why we are Members of NAIFA!! - Brian Dee Counterman, LUTCF, Littleton, CO
Congrats, again, on another AWESOME Congressional Conference!  This one seemed to run very smoothly, and I’m almost recovered from the miles of walking around the Capitol. - Bryon Holz, CLU, ChFC, CASL, LUTCF
Thanks to you and all of the Federation staff for making this year's Day on the Hill a personal success for me!  How do I measure my success?  I arrived safely, had a great time meeting new people and renewing relationships, learned from the masters at the prep meeting . . . met with each of our Nebraska senators and congressmen (moderated the Senator Fischer meeting) and traveled home safely. - Dave Skutnik, LUTCF, Grand Island, NE
Wonderful event.  I'm so glad I participated.  The meetings were effective, insightful, and motivating.  I will come back in the future. - Jon Cross, CLU, Columbus, OH
This was the best prepared of all visits to the hill. Good job NAIFA! - Gary T. Havir, LUTCF, Maplewood, MN
Thank you for all the hard work and everything your NAIFA team does on our behalf.  It was a good meeting and we will try to make the August recess a time to see the legislators in the district or State. - Rhonda Knudson, LUTCF, Great Bend, KS
[I] thought the conference was great…gets better every year obviously. Had positive meetings . . .  - Trey Kelly, ChFC, Atlanta, GA
