2014 November/December IFAPAC

The Thumping Heart of NAIFA

The recent elections have been more than a water-cooler topic. You can’t listen to radio or television without hearing about the results nationally. And there is quite a buzz about our local House and Senate races. You need to know that YOUR IFAPAC contributions were well spent on campaigns at the Federal level and State level, too.

You can’t please all of the people all of the time but many of our members are pleased with the shift in power in the US Senate and the Washington State Senate. Almost all of the races in WA that were funded by IFAPAC were winners in their districts. Part of your dues to NAIFA and part of your contributions to IFAPAC are spent at the Federal level. So the thumping heart of NAIFA continues its steady beat, working hard to protect the interests of your clients, your industry and your career. Bob Dylan sang, “Money doesn’t talk, it screams!” and your contributions screamed in this election cycle. Thank you very much.

If you didn’t get in on the IFAPAC train to success, we invite you to join the rest of us. Join the only PAC that works daily to assure your profession is protected against the attacks that come all the time. It ain’t over yet! We expect more challenges to this time-honored industry. On the target list is life insurance, annuities, disability income, long-term care, qualified plans and several other products we deliver to the communities in Washington. No matter what you sell and service, there are factions in the government that want to severely restrict your ability to offer those products. Don’t let it happen! Your monthly IFAPAC contributions make a difference.

We thank our lobbyist, Mel Sorensen, for his expertise and counsel as to where your IFAPAC dollars can be used to gain the most effect in Olympia. Now it is time to build up our account in preparation for the Presidential election cycle. Ask your friends to join you in contributing to the PAC. Do it today.

All of you that make one annual contribution to IFAPAC, be sure to get those checks sent so they reach NAIFA headquarters by December 5th. Use the form in this newsletter.

Richard Ek, LUTCF
