Welcome to the year 2016. As we enter this year, we are all excited about our goals for this year, both personally and professionally. At NAIFA-California, we have a lot to be excited about. We had a great year of advocacy on our clients’ behalves last year, and we will have another great year this year. NAIFA has been protecting our members and their clients since 1892 and we are still going strong. We have a great advocate in Sacramento in Shari McHugh, a great Government Relations Committee leader in John Davidson, and a terrific Advocacy team of eight other members, including Terry Kaltenbach, who has consented to helping build our PAC contributions this year. Please take the time to thank each of them.

January is Political Involvement Month at NAIFA-California. This effort is what has made NAIFA strong for all of these years. Our goal in January and throughout 2016 is to make our political presence even stronger than last year. We will build our grassroots organization to a larger and more potent force than ever before. How will we do that

First, we need all of our state representatives to have a least one key contact who can be counted on to communicate with that representative and their staff when called upon. We need to have every member get involved to some extent. If you know a legislator, or you would like to, please call your Regional Team member, or call me and I will put you in touch with them.

Second, we are going to start having our Day on the Hill again, on February 24. If you want to get involved, this is a great place to start. We will be have a meeting first, with the Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones speaking at lunch at the Sutter Club. After that, we will be meeting with legislators, and discussing pertinent issues that will be before them. But, even more importantly, we will be using this time to build relationships with those legislators. This is a great way to find out how to work with your legislators.

Third, we will have our new website up and running, with current issues posted and up-to-date. If you want to know what is happening in Sacramento, you will be able to find it.

And lastly, we want to improve our communication with each local member so you will know what is going on and you will feel more connected. If any of you has any questions, please feel free to call me or your regional Advocacy Team Member. I am listing their names and locals below. Thank you for your tremendous response to this urgent call. I know you will come through impressively as you always have. Thank you and have a great start to 2016.
