The Legacy Foundation Grants are available for local associations, councils and regions to offer educational programming for the members. We were honored to award 4 grants in 2016-2017 to support educational programming at each level.

Region V received a grant to support the opening and closing keynote speakers at the 2017 Regional Conference. In the post-event report submitted to the Foundation, Region V indicated “By offering these two keynote speakers will were able to keep our attendees engaged, excited about the future of themselves and of IAIP, and ready for the continued success in business and in our association that lies ahead.

Our conference was an overwhelming success! That success could not have been as easily accomplished without the support and funding provided by the NAIW Legacy Foundation.

Overall, the funds received from the NAIW Legacy Foundation allowed us to host a meaningful conference that was member-centric, positive, inclusive, educational, and inspirational.”

The Durham Association of Insurance Professionals in Region III received a grant to “immerse members in a CLP course since this was a designation not obtained by any of the DAIP members.” They offered the “How to Make Yourself Indispensable” CLP course and invited other local associations and non-members to attend. Because of the success of the course, they were able to encourage two of the non-members to join. They stated, “the Legacy Foundation grant provided professional development for our members that would not have occurred without the foundation’s support.”

The Mid-Wisconsin Insurance Association in Region V received a grant to support the education program offered at their year-end banquet in May 2017. The education focused on “a topic that is at the forefront of numerous headline news stories and is a topic our industry is going to need to know more about. That topic being ‘crisis’ situations such as active shooters, terrorism and random violence causing mass effects on large groups of people.” The event was a great success for MWIA. They shared, “Thank you, thank you, thank you…for awarding the Mid-Wisconsin Insurance Association a grant for our end-of-the-year May banquet program and being there for ALL local associations as a resource for special program funding.”

South Carolina Council in Region III received the final grant and we are looking forward to hearing their success story following the September Council Meeting.
