National Association of Insurance & Financial Advisors of Washington!

News & Announcements

On May 22, 2018, NAIFA leaders voted to modernize the association’s national bylaws with a new structure that will create a more powerful and collective voice in insurance and financial services. This event marked a watershed moment in NAIFA’s history, with a New NAIFA that will benefit you, companies, the industry and consumers.


NAIFA is now poised to transform into a thoroughly modern association, with state and large local chapters relationships across the states. The new structure will simplify operations while improving the membership experience for ALL NAIFA members, regardless of their state and local chapter affiliation. Local activity will continue to thrive and engage members through programs across the state coordinated by each region overseen by state association. The result will be more local activity with less local bureaucracy and a more positive and rewarding membership experience.
