AIL Insurance

LPNABC Executive Board members passed a motion on October 24, 2013 to discontinue the working relationship with AIL Insurance as there was no financial benefit for LPNABC or the members. The concern of protecting confidentiality of our members’ personal information was important to us.

The AIL Insurance relationship was terminated with LPNABC, effective March 6, 2014. LPNABC values our members and their personal information. We want to reaffirm, LPNABC has NOT provided any current members contact information to AIL but AIL Insurance does has contact information provided by MEMBERS from previous years.
