#NAILBA40 Annual Meeting: The Future of Brokerage is Now!


The NAILBA Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of independent life brokerage agencies. From member agency principals and staff, to insurance and financial carrier executives, and senior leadership teams from more than 100+ sponsors and exhibitors who provide BGA technologies and services, NAILBA's Annual Meeting is where the brokerage industry meets. It is where relationships are built. It is where business gets done! Past keynote speakers have been U.S. presidents, 4-Star military generals, Fortune 500 corporate executives, award-winning media personalities, sports legends, along with management and leadership experts. Learn from the best and brightest from a broad cross-section of industries, interacting and networking with industry leaders. 


As a compliment to NAILBA 40, we have launched an annual resource that exams the independent distribution (ID) trends in the insurance and financial services markets – ID Trends. We have compiled the research and articles within ID Trends to provide insights, education, and fodder for your business on such topics as life insurance, long-term care, disability insurance, annuities, as well as back office support and commission reporting.
