More from our Annual Meeting guest blogger, Jill Regester, Director of Marketing Communications, WoodmenLife:

I’m back y’all! Your blogger on the scene … reporting in from day one of the American Fraternal Alliance 2016 Annual Meeting.

The theme today was CHANGE. And not the customary, “be the change you want to see in the world” (thanks, Gandhi) topic of change you’d expect from our group of dedicated fraternalists.

Hello, fellow Fraternalists! Jill Regester here, Director of Marketing Communications for WoodmenLife. I have the honor and privilege of being this year’s guest blogger during the American Fraternal Alliance’s Annual Meeting.

One of the staff’s favorite tasks to do for the Alliance Annual Meeting is to work with societies headquartered in the meeting city to find a worthy charity for our attendees to financially support while we are visiting. Well, for Nashville, we were on our own. So, we all put our research hats on…

And hats off to a nameless staffer (thank you, Linda!) who thought it mHAwould be appropriate to help the local musician community.

With the NAIC Summer Meeting coming up this weekend and the Alliance Annual Meeting following quickly on its heels, there is just not much time for writing creative blog posts. Fortunately, I came across two terrific articles this past week that addressed two important topics better than I could have on my own. I wanted to share them with you because they provide such profound insights into our business.

The first is a blog post written by my colleague Faye Lageu of the International Cooperative and Mutual Insurance Federation (ICMIF).

As you can imagine, things are just a little hectic around the Alliance as we prepare for the Annual Meeting next month in Nashville. But I’ve still made time to update my itunes file and squeeze in a few good books on those flights to member society conventions and regulator meetings. Here are the top ten additions to my playlist and reading list. Share your comments and suggestions by posting a comment at the end…

I’m not a huge fan of the Olympics. For the most part, I think the purity of competition between amateur athletes – which I’ve always felt was the cornerstone of the Games – has been transformed into a jingoistic commercial behemoth comprised of professional athletes whose job it is to win medals. Nonetheless, I can’t escape watching some of the competition, some of which I love (track and field) and some of which I love to hate (see below).
