The National Association of Independent Life Brokerage Agencies (NAILBA) continues in its mission of supporting the industry's growth by launching the ID Media Network.

A multi-platform media network, NAILBA’s ID Media Network is a first of its kind, offering industry information, educational resources and engaging content for independent insurance agency executives, brokers and independent advisors. The ID Network houses nine different media channels covering live on-demand videos and events, digital and print publications, newsletters, and social media interactions. 

This powerful network unlocks access to dedicated news, resources and informative content within the independent distribution market. The video series within the network includes timely interviews with industry executives detailing 2020 trends and interviews with BGA principals on such subjects as marketplace change and regulatory challenges.

This multi-faceted network consists of the following NAILBA resources:
  • Perspective Magazine - NAILBA's quarterly publication. 
  • ID Trends - NAILBA's special bi-annual resource magazine. 
  • The Independent - Digital newsletter for the independent advisor.
  • NAILBA Now - The exclusive digital newsletter for NAILBA members.
  • - The association's website, housed with endless industry-related content.
  • Brokerage in Motion - The association's podcast hosted by NAILBA's CEO, Dan LaBert. 
  • ID Video Channel - Includes video interviews with insurance executives, BGA, and IMO principals on market trends, latest offerings, and news.
  • Webinar Series - Presentations by the foremost thought-leaders of the industry.
  • NAILBA 39 - The annual meeting where the brokerage industry meets.

“With the reduction in third party informational resources and media outlets, we believed it was imperative to create unbiased content to support the independent insurance and financial services professionals,” explained Pam Sheehan, Senior Director of The ID Media Network. “Understanding that not everyone consumes information the same way, we created a variety of B2B platforms that reach over 200,000 industry professionals.”

Dan LaBert, CEO of NAILBA anticipates that this network is going to take NAILBA and the independent market to the next level, "Providing the best opportunities possible for our industry is at the helm of our mission. As a leader of the independent brokerage market, it only made sense to build upon our offerings by establishing the ID Media Network for the independent insurance distribution market.”
