Well, the first 30 days of the new fiscal year for NAIFA-Wisconsin have just flown by!  I hope you are enjoying your summer while still focusing on growth for your individual offices as well as your respective Locals.

I wanted to take this opportunity to touch on a couple of things you might just find important, if not valuable. 

Upcoming Dues Increase.  I know, it's a touchy subject but I feel it's my responsibility to let you know that, we as an organization, fully support this increase and endorse the benefits it will provide.  As you all know, this is a pivotal time in our industry and your membership is just as important as ever.  I praise you all for leading by example with your continued membership.  As members, we understand how vitally important it is to have the support and resources at our finger tips that NAIFA-National can provide.  The $6 increase is necessary for them to continue to provide that support and leadership.  

To those that will be joining me in Las Vegas in September for the National Convention, I ask you to "vote your conscience" with regard to a $6.00 per month increase. Please join me in supporting the organization whose vision and mission serve to enhance and improve your business and professional skills, advocate for a positive legislative and regulatory environment and promote the ethical conduct of our members. 

On a lighter note, the Leadership Summit is less than two weeks away so if you have not already registered, please take a moment and do so. I know we are all busy, but registering ourselves, as well as reaching out to the Locals to invite their participation, is imperative to a successful experience for us all!  This will help create a foundation and focus for the future years of the State and Local Leaders working together.  

So please...take 5 minutes out of your day to make this a priority.  Just do it!

Have a great month!

"On Wisconsin!"
