It's hot and humid in North Carolina right now, but in just a few short months, fall will be here in all its glory. Fall really is the best time in North Carolina and a huge reason we've decided to host Propel 2019, our annual user conference, in our home state once again. If you're wondering what Propel is all about, check out the event site for all the deets or read our recap from last year's event. For those who haven't yet registered, here are some of the FAQs we've been getting to help you make the decision to attend!
Several members of the IFS team had the pleasure of participating in Pershing’s INSITE 2019 last week in Phoenix. The conference featured 36 breakout sessions, 4 professional development workshops, 48 showcase stage presentations, a booming exhibit hall and a wealth of “inspiration, learning and networking.” Our CEO Tim Parsons and Managing Director of Product Strategy Ray Mulligan, along with Account Director Shaun Christensen, braved the desert to attend the financial advice community’s leading conference.

In a little less than two months, IFS application users from across the country will descend upon Charlotte, NC, for IFS's annual user group meeting, Propel 2018. As we make the final preparations for this year's event, which will be held October 24-October 25, we are reflecting on last year's meeting in Minneapolis, MN. Here is just some of the feedback we received from last year's participants:
We were excited to be at NAILBA this year for our second time and it was great for so many reasons--but mostly, to see some old friends that we’ve known for many years and meet some new ones that we hope to share experiences with for years to come. It was also great to have an opportunity show the industry how far we’ve come and to hear the positive feedback about our offerings.
We hosted our inaugural user group meeting last week in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and wanted to share some of the highlights from the event. Thanks to everyone who made Impact 2017 such a success! And a special thanks to the team at Ameriprise for graciously hosting! We are already looking forward to Impact 2018.
IFS attended the ACORD 2017 conference, which was held October 24 – 26 in Boston, Massachusetts. The attendees included hundreds of individuals representing insurance carriers, distribution partners, and solution providers. The agenda consisted of several general sessions and break out discussions with the goal to educate, collaborate and move the ACORD standards forward.
Unless you’ve been living in a cave for the past ten years you’ve seen a segment of the life insurance industry grow by leaps and bounds. This area has to do with direct marketers who sell primarily over the web.
