This Picture: What's Wrong With It?

NAILBA - the National Association of Independent Life Brokerage Agencies - is currently in the midst of its 36th annual convention, and by all accounts a fine time is being had by all. Which is, of course, great, but also provides an excellent illustration of the disconnect between trade groups such as this (and of course, they're far from unique in this regard) and how the public perceives those of us in the field.

Several years ago, I noted the irony inherent in a continuing education course on ethics:

"My fellow participants couldn't understand why I was giggling about an "Ethics" course given - for free! - to agents who'd received a "goody bag" full of tschochkes (chip clips, staplers, etc)."

Well, apparently the folks sponsoring that class were pikers:

ExamOne is a vendor agents and carriers use for medical exams for insurance applicants.

So much for those Ethics CE requirements....
