Don't Waste a Crisis

By Bellaria Jimenez on 5/12/21 10:22 AM

“Don’t Waste A Crisis”, this term has been used for some time. Over the past year the “crisis” has obviously been the COVID 19 pandemic. What we don’t want to “waste” are the opportunities this unfortunate scourge has created. Our profession, overall, is in a strong position to benefit from the current state of affairs based on the economic stress that both individuals and business have experienced.

NAIFA-NJ Supports the Members of NAIFA-New York

By Kris Dickson on 9/30/20 4:22 PM

As the Executive Board of the State Chapter of New Jersey, we would like to unanimously state for the public record that we are committed to NAIFA Nation and will serve our members’ best interests. We undertake our fiduciary duties of overseeing our state chapter association seriously and are good stewards of our chapter’s assets whether the resources we oversee are monetary or human capital.

What we value most—and is the key value of NAIFA—is our word. Our reputation, the way that we conduct ourselves and the way we treat others is the essence of what it means to belong to NAIFA.

We were shocked and dismayed to learn that a small group of NYS members were seemingly hoodwinked into voting to disaffiliate with NAIFA and that this news was made public without the knowledge of the vast majority of members of the chapter—and even many a board member who resigned immediately upon hearing the news.

The Executive Board of NAIFA-New Jersey was particularly wounded to learn of this announcement given the past history of financial support and close geographic proximity. In particular, NAIFA-New Jersey and NAIFA National both contributed to NAIFA-NYS’ legal fund in support of their legislative efforts.

This move by a few of the former chapter members and Park Strategies association management company involves multiple violations, but at the end of the day, it is not the NAIFA way and we, as representatives of our state chapter, cannot condone such behavior.
