About National Association of Insurance Marketers (NAIM)
A Message from Our Chairman
In 1974, I began my career in the insurance industry as an agent. This was long before the Internet, personal computers, laptops, cell phones, and all the other modern technologies that have become integral parts of today’s business world. This was when an agent had to haul rate books to every appointment. You might remember those cumbersome 3-ring binders, too.
The first piece of technology I remember was a handheld device that allowed me to print a quote on a strip of thermal paper.
Technology has changed dramatically. Today, we can accomplish more work in a shorter period with an incredible degree of accuracy. The transfer of documents and data is no longer at the mercy of the postal system since information travels worldwide instantaneously.
As chairman of the National Association of Insurance Marketers, I have the good fortune to witness technology being used to benefit an entire industry and, as a result, provide a greater degree of service and a wider range of products. As an organization, we are continually impressed and inspired by the innovative ways our members provide peer to peer support, new marketing initiatives, and creative and effective ways to bring a broader range of insurance products to the masses. Every year, our membership grows, increasing our bargaining power to your benefit.
Throughout my career, I have discovered that when we work together, everybody benefits. This basic truth is the foundation upon which NAIM is built. We look forward to working with you as we continue to build on the competitive advantage provided by this ever-growing network.

You also have a higher level of access to carriers that generally work with the larger distributors.
