“There's never been as much consumer interest at the same time as there's a scarcity of knowledgeable insurance professionals willing and able to offer these solutions," declares Jesse Slome, director of the American Association for Long Term Care Insurance (AALTCI). "We'd like to see several thousand insurance agents gain a knowledge of the present-day fundamentals about both traditional long term care insurance and the alternative LTC solutions in the form of life insurance policies and annuities."
The Association announced it will offer free access to watch live streams of sessions from the organization's 2014 national sales conference. "From the comfort of your home or office, insurance agents and financial advisors will be able to watch between six and eight hours of outstanding sessions featuring top industry experts," Slome notes. "One can watch 10 minutes or the full free conference broadcast."
The Association agreed to waive the $99 registration fee for the conference as part of it's campaign to increase participation by insurance agents. "There are thousands of insurance agents who at one time sold long term care insurance but their knowledge is dated and their sales practices are rusty," Slome explains. "We're giving them the opportunity to learn and succeed with really no effort and no cost."
The 2014 National Long Term Care Solutions Sales Summit takes place May 18-20 in Kansas City. Free online broadcasts will be handled by Virtual Insurance Conferences and Expos with free registration to view on their website http://www.insuranceexpos.com.
