Reception and NAILBA Charitable Foundation Live Auction

Bring your checkbook and your enthusiasm! The NAILBA Charitable Foundation Live Auction has been reunited with the Mooers Award Reception, making this one of the most exciting events you can enjoy in black-tie. Prepare yourself to be in awe of professional auctioneer Steve Katz from NAILBA member agency Premier Brokerage Services, as he leads us through the bidding of many exciting auction prizes. Bidding is fast-paced and very competitive - you don’t want to miss this, whether you plan to participate as a bidder or a spectator.


If you are interested in contributing an item to the Foundation Live Auction, or have questions about the NAILBA Charitable Foundation, please contact Kathy Allison, Director of Membership and the Foundation ( or 703.383.3072). 

Douglas Mooers Award and Dinner

The Douglas Mooers Award for Excellence is NAILBA’s most coveted and prestigious award. This annual award honors excellence in brokerage and is bestowed upon the individual most committed to furthering brokerage and independent life brokerage as a distribution system. The recipient will be just as surprised as the audience when Immediate Past Chairman and Chair of the Mooers Award Committee George C. "Chip" Van Dusen IV,announces the recipient's name. It's a can't miss moment at the NAILBA Annual Meeting! 

We will also take an opportunity during this Dinner to bid farewell to our recently-retired CEO, Jack Chiasson!
