NEW YORK, N.Y., May 1, 2006 — New York Life Insurance Company announced today that it is holding its first cultural markets conference for all New York Life agents and managers serving the Asian–Indian, African American, Chinese, Hispanic, Korean and Vietnamese markets. While New York Life has held individual cultural market conferences, this is the first time that agents serving all six cultural markets will come together for a national conference held in Las Vegas, Nevada at the Aladdin Hotel and Casino on May 2 — May 5, 2006. The theme is "Company of the Community."
"By providing large scale support, training and sharing best practices among agents who serve every community, our clients can feel confident that New York Life agents will help them achieve their financial goals no matter what language they speak or where they live," said Mark Pfaff, senior vice president in charge of the Agency Department, who will be giving the opening remarks at the conference.
