A Brief History of NAIFA-Colorado

NAIFA-Colorado, originally founded as the Colorado Association of Life Underwriters (CALU) in 1935, was based on the precept that those engaged in life underwriting occupy
the unique position of liaison between the purchasers and the suppliers of life and health insurance and closely-related financial products. Inherent in this role is the combination
of professional duty to the client and to the company, as well. Ethical balance is required to avoid any conflict between these two obligations.

NAIFA-Colorado’s mission:
NAIFA-Colorado is an organization of insurance and financial advisors whose purpose is to serve as an information resource, to promote ethical conduct, and to enhance
our professional skills and public image, and support our local associations.

The NAIFA-Colorado Board of Directors meets four times per year, promoting educational programming and continuing education. In addition, we promote advocacy through
legislative functions, including IFAPAC, APIC, Legislative Receptions, and a Day on the Hill. We also send representatives to the Division of Insurance’s Producers Advisory Council
to articulate our views on rules, regulations, and pending legislation, as it affects the field of insurance and financial planning.
