 Legislative Day in Lincoln

All Roads Lead to Lincoln on February 19th!   Plan to join us Tuesday, Feb. 19 for the NAIFA-Nebraska Legislative Day "Drive In" in Lincoln.  This is our annual visit with our elected officials for an event with true "grassroots" impact.

AGAIN THIS YEAR!  Our format will provide attendees with two hours of continuing education credits -- plus an opportunity for you and other NAIFA members to meet privately with the State Senator representing your district.  Here's a quick overview of the agenda for the day:

10AM to 12 Noon -- We'll meet for a legislative briefing session which will tentatively include the following speakers:

  • Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts
  • Senator Mark Kolterman (District 24) -- Former insurance agent and NAIFA member, chairs the NE Retirement Systems Committee & also serves on the Banking, Commerce & Insurance Committee
  • Senator Jim Scheer (District 19) -- Speaker of the Legislature
  • Bruce Ramge -- DIrector, NE Department of Insurance
  • Mick Mines -- NAIFA-Nebraska Lobbyist

 

PLUS --- attending this event means you are an "actively involved" NAIFA member!  And that means you also will be eligible to get an additional SIX HOURS of complimentary CE credits just for having attended this event!  Thanks to the passage of LB 486 last year, NAIFA-Nebraska members who are "actively involved" in supporting the Association are now eligible to receive six hours of CE for each 2-year renewal cycle.As background, NAIFA-Nebraska had worked with State Senator Mark Kolterman to introduce the bill in the 2017 Legislative session.  With the support of the Nebraska Department of Insurance and other insurance associations, the bill was passed and signed into law last year.  CLICK HERE to view the final bill, and CLICK HERE to view the related bulletin from the Nebraska Department of Insurance.

Lunch will be available following the morning program and briefings.  The NAIFA-Nebraska office will schedule a time for you to have a brief 15-20 minute meeting with your State Senator in their Capitol office during the lunch hour or the early afternoon.  We'll provide you with all the tools and information you'll need to have a productive meeting.  If you've never met with your State Senator before -- don't worry about it!  We'll pair you up with a "veteran" NAIFA member to accompany you to your meeting.  You're sure to come away having taken an important first step in establishing a good relationship with your Senator.

There is no fee for NAIFA members to attend this important event!
