NAIFA Welcomes New Member Cliff Kwartner

By NAIFA-Maryland on 6/9/22 12:10 AM

When Cliff Kwartner was studying business administration in college, he didn’t know what he wanted to do. When he graduated, he narrowed his job offers down to two positions: mortgage broker or insurance agent. He decided to go into insurance because he saw it as a career rather than just a job. It was 2008—he made the right choice. 

Making a Difference

Kwartner loved his career from the start—he loved talking to new people and helping them plan for the life they wanted. One of the benefits of being an insurance agent is building relationships with others in the industry, says Kwartner. “Your reputation is your biggest asset. If you do good business and you do things the right way, that will go a long way.”

NAIFA-Maryland 2021 Legislative Session Summary

By Bryson F. Popham on 4/23/21 10:41 AM

The COVID 19 pandemic caused material changes in the annual session of the Maryland General Assembly, as it has with all aspects of our lives. The volume of legislation was typical, with more than 2,300 bills introduced and a little over 800 passed. All aspects of legislative activity this year, however, were virtual, including conducting legislative business in the House of Delegates from two different locations. The social distancing requirements that continue to impact our daily lives applied equally to our State legislators. It is surprising that the legislature accomplished its work (only the budget bill is required to be passed each year) without a COVID outbreak and with no interruption in its ordinary course of business.
