  • COVID-19: A Message to Our Members, Partners & Friends

    March 18, 2020 by NAILBA

    As you know, COVID-19, commonly known as novel coronavirus 2019, has become a more widespread concern. Our thoughts are with those affected and we want to share more information with you about NAILBA’s efforts to be the voice of independent brokerage distribution during these challenging times for industry events, meetings and conferences, etc.

    NAILBA has reached out to most, if not all, insurance carriers in our space to gain clarity on upcoming interaction as it relates to maintaining relationships and business continuity. Our responsibility to secure the future of families and small businesses must continue and remain a top priority. We have received several official responses from our carrier partners (More Info HERE) and more are expected with this evolving situation. Be sure and bookmark the NAILBA website page for updated information.

    Several IMO meetings, agency events and industry conferences have either been cancelled, postponed or decided to press on though other engagement methods. Spring and Summer industry events that remain scheduled are doing everything possible to monitor the situation and maintain the health and safety of participants, exhibitors, staff, and all those involved.

    Last month, NAILBA announced the creation of the NAILBA ID Video Network. Before travel concerns increased, the NAILBA team was able to secure approximately 30 video interviews with carrier executives and BGA principals on new products for 2020, as well as, trends, opportunities and challenges for the insurance distribution marketplace. Please look for these videos in next few week or two to help keep you informed.

    NAILBA is carefully monitoring the evolving coronavirus situation. Like many, we are hopeful for an effective solution in the near future. In the meantime, the NAILBA Annual Meeting, November 18-20 at the Diplomat Hotel in Hollywood, Florida, remains as one of the few opportunities for independent distribution to gather as an industry and assess the performance of the current year and plan for the next year. If your organization event is being impacted by COVID-19, please contact NAILBA CEO Dan LaBert to discuss the possibility of joining with NAILBA and hosting your event as part of our meeting (space and schedule permitting). From carrier meetings to IMO meetings to association conferences, there may be a bigger opportunity for the profession to gather in one place while also maximizing potential savings.

    We are in the business of relationship building and management. While several online options can assist during these difficult times, face to face meetings in a clean environment remains an utmost necessity. We expect to deliver this opportunity for the entire independent distribution industry later this year.

    Belong, Connect & Grow with NAILBA.

    With Best Regards,

    Seixas “Chad” Milner III
    2020 NAILBA Chairman

    PS: Given the changes in scheduled meetings and events combined with marketing budgets, please review HERE for ways to enhance your presence at #NAILBA39.
