Our Community Partners Help Us All Stay On Track

For over twenty years, organizations in the nonprofit community have put their trust in the National Association Executives Forum to provide the best value in employee benefits and life-long financial security education for members of their staff.  As an NAEF member, you can participate in the NAEF Master Plan to help your staff prepare for a secure financial future. 

We understand the needs and challenges you face finding the right benefits to keep your staff happy. Our investment committee carefully selects products for inclusion in the retirement Master Plan. Low-cost group term-life and disability benefits packages are available to round out your employee coverage. All this is overseen by association professionals just like you

NAEF works closely with Fidelity's investment analysts to select a balanced portfolio of investment options. Individual participants have choices and the ability to change their investment plan as needed in order to meet their goals.

Retirement plan participants interact frequently with our Third Party Administrator (TPA), Preferred Pension Planning Corp. (PPPC)  to make deposits and manage their individual plans. PPPC has a team of highly trained professionals who understand how important benefits programs are to your association and your staff.

Our Unum benefits plans were developed specifically for NAEF members, and our ongoing financial education programs, conducted throughout the country - in-house and on-line - are scheduled to meet your organization's needs.

NAEF is made up of organizations just like yours, so we understand your needs


Our members are all part of the same community

The National Association Executives Forum was created by associations, for associations, in 2000 to enhance the knowledge and skills of over 200 organizations and their employees - association staff - by providing education related to management, human resources, communications, health and welfare, and retirement issues.
