Insurance Producers

The International Foundation seeks approval of the Annual Conference from state insurance departments based on requests made on the program registration forms. Approval is not automatically sought in all states. 

Most states require receipt of an approval request at least 60 days in advance of the program. It is important that insurance producers who need continuing education credit register early to ensure program approval will be sought in your state! Please direct any questions you may have to Laura Scholz at (262)786-6710, option 2, or email  ​

If there is no indication that your state is pending 2021 insurance approval in the chart below, no request for 2021 credit has been made. Please contact the Continuing Education department with any questions.
