    Thanks for the memories

    This year's Annual Meeting was a great success, and I just want to thank all of the members who attended.  Many delegates told me that it was the best meeting they had been to in years.

    I’m still on the road, attending the NAIC meeting in Washington, D.C., but I wanted to give you a brief overview of the meeting.  Click on the play button below to hear my comments.

    You can click on the following links to view some photos of the Annual Meeting, as well as our community service project, and we’re working to post the many audio recordings and PowerPoint presentations from all of the workshops ASAP. 

    More photos and information on the meeting will be coming soon… so check the NFCA Web site for updates. 

    If you weren’t able to attend this year’s meeting, you can still gain some valuable information from the presentations that will be posted later this week.  If you did attend the meeting, let me know what you thought about your experience – good or bad – by posting your comments below.

    1. This was my first NFCA annual meeting and I was very impressed! The discussions were good, the meeting was organized very well and what a great way to start things off with a service project.
      I also was welcomed by many as a new member and enjoyed the reception where I had an opportunity to meet a great crowd. Well done!

    2. I’d like to challenge all of us, including our Societies and our State Fraternal Congresses, to identify a way to help supplement or support their “fraternalist of the year” in each state (or the states they have a presence), to attend the NFCA Convention. It is a costly venture, but the value we’d all realize is immeasurable. Their presence would enhance the event dramatically. These are the folks “in the trenches” doing these fraternal projects almost on a daily basis, like Sandra Hoggard. They would congregat in the State Section in order to share and get each other excited about other opportunities that are out there. Awarding this trip to an outstanding lay (not an agent, or employee, or employee’s spouse of a Society) fraternalist would be a great way to acknowledge their contribution to our society and mankind.
      At a minimum, our State Fraternal Congresses should be asking their incoming presidents to attend the NFCA Convention. And providing the necessary financial support to make that happen.
