January CORE Event

Networking in the New Year

Thursday, January 15, 2014  |  Seattle Yacht Club | 7:30am to 9:00 am


Join your colleagues to start off the new year right, with your NAIFA friends!  Directly resulting from member feedback, we return to a shorter, more frequent style of events.  These will have a predictable schedule and steady location.  Our first event of 2015 will feature a brief presentation on Effective Networking from our newest local board member, Stephen Good.  Following will be a one-hour CE presentation from long-time NAIFA supporter, Bob Merz, on settling complex estates and the importance adequate life insurance plays in doing so.  (WAOIC Approved CE Course #611537)
