BURLINGTON, N.C. — The headquarters of National Agents Alliance has been a hub of activity in the last two weeks, as staff members put final touches in place in anticipation of the “Fight To Unite” Leadership Conference that will take place July 18-20.
This will mark the second straight year the event has been held at the Alliance’s corporate office on Turrentine Street, and will bring in out-of-state agents from across the United States. NAA, which hosts two national events annually, hosted its National Convention at the Charlotte Convention Center in January.
The Alliance corporate staff is excited to be hosting another national event on their “home turf.”
“We are excited to be holding our Leadership Conference at our home office because it gives us an advantage that we don’t have in places like Raleigh, Charlotte or Dallas, Texas,” NAA President and CEO Andy Albright said. “Our staff has been working hard to get everything in place and this event promises to be a highly successful weekend for our team.”
The event will have an impact on the local economy as agents will book hotel rooms for multiple nights and eat at various local establishments during the weekend.
“We know that local establishments and hotels will be happy to see our people coming in from all over the country because it will give them an economic boost,” Albright said. “When you start thinking about hotels being sold out that weekend, you know that it’s a positive for Burlington and Alamance County.”
Breakout sessions will start Friday morning and the event’s official kickoff is Friday evening. Things will wrap up around noon on Sunday, offering agents three days filled with training and leadership from the top leaders of The Alliance.
Prior to the event kicking off on Friday, NAA will team up with Foresters, an international financial services provider and membership-based fraternal benefits organization, to work on a facility upgrade for children at the Boys & Girls Club in Alamance County. NAA’s motto is “Have Fun, Make Money and Make a Difference.” Projects like the Boys & Girls Club upgrade are just one example of NAA giving back.
“When you think about the children and the number of lives impacted by an organization like the Boys & Girls Club, then you start to realize that you are making a difference to people,” Albright said. “We love working with Foresters to help upgrade facilities at places like the Boys & Girls Club. It’s going to be a great way to start our weekend off right.”
