The employee benefits industry is in trouble.

In the words of industry thought leader & AIL Chairman, Nelson Griswold:

“An obsolete business model, declining compensation, commissions at risk, medical premiums trending toward unsustainable, declining benefits for employees, a looming labor shortage.

“Bottom line, ours is an industry in crisis.

“The Association for Insurance Leadership, the industry’s newest organization, is committed to raising and equipping leaders to address the crisis threatening our great industry.”


For the benefits industry to weather the crisis and for the independent agency model to survive, strong leadership is needed.
