Plan to Attend These Special Events at NAIFA Performance + Purpose By Tara Laptew
The agenda for NAIFA Performance + Purpose, Sept. 13-16 in San Antonio, is chock full of special events for all attendees.
Registration and a variety of optional events take place the afternoon of Thursday, September 13. Be sure to arrive in time for the Meet-Up Happy Hour starting at 5 p.m. Everyone has their community within NAIFA! Pick the happy hour community that’s right for you and meet your fellow attendees at these informal get-togethers. You can choose a happy hour for the long-term care community, advanced practice advisors, the multiline community or LUTCF/LACP designees. Or, go to more than one!
Before Thursday’s Happy Hour starts, take part in the community service project with Together We Rise. During this event, volunteers will assemble bicycles or personalized duffle bags for foster children. Together We Rise is dedicated to making life a little better for children in foster care. You can help make a different for these children by devoting just a couple of hours at the start of P+P.
If you’re a LILI graduate, Thursday night’s LILI Alumni Reception is for you. Mingle with your fellow LILI alumni and get a great start on Performance + Purpose. Advance tickets are $35.
The Independent Advisors Networking Reception on Friday evening is a great opportunity to mix, mingle and make contacts with your colleagues from across the nation. The reception is complimentary for registered attendees who are independent advisors.
You can’t miss the NAIFA Party at the Aztec Theatre featuring the Thomas Nicholas Band. The historic Aztec Theatre is a unique San Antonio landmark, and the Thomas Nicholas Band is a rock-and-roll party ready to happen. The party gets started at 9 p.m. Friday, September 14 and is open to all attendees.
Saturday morning offers two special breakfasts. If you’re a NAIFA member who has been in the financial-services business for 40 or more years, you are one of our industry’s trailblazers and are invited to the Trailblazers’ Breakfast, which will take place from 7 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. on Saturday morning. If you want to know more about working with women in insurance and financial services, plan to attend the Women in Insurance and Financial Services Breakfast, also occurring from 7 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. on Saturday and sponsored by WIFS.
Even if you’re not a LILI graduate, you can attend Saturday’s LILI 7 Workshop. Antarctic Mike (i.e., Mike Pierce) will be the featured speaker this year. He has a 20-year track record of success in sales, the recruitment industry and as a professional speaker. An expedition to Antarctica changed his life. He learned a lot about himself and about business from his adventures, and will share these lessons with you.
