NAILBA Announces That Lisa Ling Will Speak at Virtual Summer Symposium
Ling’s appearance is sponsored by Legal & General America.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE—(Fairfax, VA)—06/30/2022 —The National Association of Independent Life Brokerage Agencies (NAILBA) today announced that their 2022 Summer Symposium will include a special discussion with renowned journalist and author, Lisa Ling, sponsored by Legal & General America. At the virtual event, which will take place on August 2 and 3, Ling will discuss breaking misconceptions and building client trust.

Currently executive producer and host of This is Life on CNN, Ling also executive produced and hosted Our America on OWN: the Oprah Winfrey Network, and has spent her storied career as an investigative journalist. Her incredible experiences include embedding in a Midwest town ravaged by an onslaught of heroin, witnessing the manifestation of PTSD in returning veterans of war, and profiling Americans living beneath the poverty line for the first time.

As the former field correspondent for The Oprah Winfrey Show and contributor to ABC News' Nightline and National Geographic's Explorer, Ling has reported from dozens of countries, covering stories about gang rape in the Congo, bride burning in India, the Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda, and the Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang in Central America, among other issues that are too often ignored.

“We are deeply thankful to Legal & General for bringing Lisa Ling to NAILBA this summer,” said NAILBA CEO, Dan LaBert. “Her commitment to the truth and long career studying humankind give her a unique perspective to share with our community. We are lucky to be able to engage with her in this exclusive setting.”
