Producer: Carroll Golden, Executive Director of NAIFA’s Limited & Extended Care Planning Center

Speakers: Diane Boyle, NAIFA SVP for Government Relations and Roger Sims, loyal member since 2001.

This ‘interview’ format session will look at the effect and affect of publicly funded LTC programs. Topics will be gathered from agents/advisors/agencies at-large so our presenters can address issues that impact your business. There are always two sides to the equation and it’s important to maximize the positive and minimize the negative in amplifying our voice.


“LTC Sales Opportunities for the Affluent Client and Business Owner Market,” March 22, 2 pm

Producer: Carroll Golden, Executive Director of NAIFA’s Limited & Extended Care Planning Center

Speakers: Shawn Britt; Robert Eaton; Neil Himmelstein, loyal member since 1997

Discussing LTC with affluent clients and business owners requires a customized approach. Join us to learn how set up LTC sales with business owners, and with affluent clients who are thinking of “self-insuring”. We will also discuss what your CPA centers of influence may not know – how the internal design of Hybrid (linked benefit) LTC policies, LTC riders on life insurance and annuities, and Chronic Illness Riders can make a difference in meeting client’s planning needs.


Following the conference programming on March 21 from 5:30-7:30 pm NAIFA will host a special cocktail reception and networking event to celebrate the recent release of Carroll Golden's book, How Not to Tear Your Family Apart. This book investigates how to start having critical conversations as a family to help aging parents plan for the future. Golden is the Executive Director of NAIFA's Limited & Extended Care Planning Center and a loyal NAIFA member since 2019. She will be signing copies of her book during the reception. NAIFA members, prospective members, and partners are all encouraged to attend. Participation in the ILTCI conference is not required to attend this event. It will be held at the Raleigh Convention Center and those who plan to attend should RSVP to receive further information.
