President's Message -

Regarding growth – we humans try new things and do them poorly until we learn to do them well. That is the human experience from birth. At some point, we fear failing or looking foolish too much to try new things and our growth stops, usually near high school! Then at some point we decide we don’t care what other folks think and we grow again.  

All The Best!  Art

Bruce P. Knopp, CLU, ChFC, LUTCF
It is with deep sadness that I share that our dear friend and great NAIFA IL Past President, Bruce Knopp, passed away on Friday, June 25th. A memorial visitation for Bruce was held Thursday, July 1, 2021, 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM at Friedrich-Jones Funeral Home & Cremation Services.
Bruce was a very loyal supporter of NAIFA for 49 years; Bruce was a true “lifer.” He had a passion for NAIFA, serving both on the board of directors and as president for both NAIFA DuPage (now NAIFA Chicagoland) and NAIFA IL. He was awarded the NAIFA DuPage Hall of Fame - Member of the Year Award in 2001 for his hard work and commitment to NAIFA.
Bruce served most recently as the National Committeeman for NAIFA IL for nearly 9 years. He received the NAIFA IL Distinguished Service Award in 2019. He was also a committee member on the NAIFA National Committee on Associations for 11 years. Bruce was a 2010 LILI (Leadership in Life Institute) graduate.  
Bruce will be missed so very much by his NAIFA family, and we are forever grateful for all he has done to promote, support and maintain the mission of NAIFA.    Read More
