Los Angeles, CA, March 06, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Member number 6,000 has joined the long term care insurance Linkedin group hosted and organized by the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance.
"This is a significant milestone and evidence of the continuing interest in long term care insurance issues," declares Jesse Slome, executive director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance (AALTCI). Slome serves as moderator for the online group which enables insurance professionals to pose questions and seek expert advice and information.
"Unlike most Linkedin groups which are open boards that have become cluttered with promotional and self-serving messages, we monitor the group and maintain a no-promotion policy," Slome explained. "That means the people who sign up can rest assured that they'll not find their emails cluttered with messages they have no interest in."
The professional group was started in September 2009 and has grown steadily. "It's a good mix of insurance agents and brokers, many who are new but also many who are quite seasoned and experienced," Slome adds. "It's really the largest group of folks interested in long term care insurance that I've seen."
We want to share what works today, not what used to work two, three or five years ago," Slome explains. "Too many webinars and conferences focus on the past rather than the present and the future."
AALTCI is a national trade organization that strives to create heightened awareness and understanding about various options for paying for long term care costs. The organization was founded by Slome in 1998 who is the author of over 20 consumer guides and books focused on long term care planning.
