In that spirit, your association had yet another record year in membership growth, topping out at over 1,900 agency members with almost 2,200 office locations. FAIA members also contributed record amounts to the association’s political action committees, which were essential to the industry’s success in one of the most important elections in recent memory. FAIA Member Services returned utilization bonuses to over 900 member agencies—more than ever before. Finally, FAIA also had another very successful fiscal year by adding to member equity and strengthening the association’s balance sheet.
Indeed, we are thankful for your membership and continued support of this great association. May your holiday season be joyous and the New Year one of peace and prosperity!
