The general membership of NAFA, the National Association for Fixed Annuities, approved recommendations for its newly elected 2016 board of directors at the association’s annual meeting held recently in Miami, Fla. Nominations were received from the membership at large, and candidates were thoroughly vetted by the current board before being announced in Miami. With all present at the meeting in favor of the new appointments, four new members and one re-elect actively began filling their roles effective January 1, 2016.
