Why Join NAILBA?

The National Association of Independent Life Brokerage Agencies (NAILBA) was established in 1981 to represent the business, legislative, and regulatory interest of the independent wholesale life insurance brokerage agencies. From government affairs, to professional development opportunities, to the official annual meeting and convention of America's brokers and brokerage general agencies, NAILBA continues to lead the way in protecting the interest of the wholesale brokerage industry. When your agency is a member of NAILBA, membership opens doors to many opportunities. NAILBA offers a community of BGAs that you can rely on for support; tools to help you manage your business, and professional development for you, your staff, and the producers who work with you.
