Is Your Insurance Current?
NASMM conducts random audits of member profiles. If, during our review, we discover your insurance is not current, your listing on the NASMM "Find A Senior Move Manager" map will be immediately removed. All NASMM General Members are required to keep a current copy of their general business liability certificate of insurance (COI) on file in their "MyNASMM" account. Do not send your COI to NASMM, you can easily upload it to your "MyNASMM" profile. As a reminder, NASMM provides an opportunity to upload your COI during the online dues renewal process.

NASMM National Client Satisfaction Program — Your Participation Helps Everyone!
Earlier this year, NASMM released our National Client Satisfaction Survey. By distributing this survey to your clients and returning completed surveys to NASMM, we can tell a national story about how Senior Move Management services positively impact older adults — and in turn promote the benefits of using NASMM members. The data we collect will serve as the basis for new marketing materials, press-worthy statistics, white papers etc — all items you can use to enhance and strengthen your position as trusted AND important resources to your potential clients and referral sources.

About the NASMM National Client Satisfaction Survey:

  • The survey does not ask your clients for any identifying information — surveys are completely anonymous.
  • The survey does not ask for any identifying information about your company.
  • The survey has 20 questions and can easily be completed in less than five minutes.
  • Both an online version and a paper version are available in the "MyNASMM" section of the website under the "Marketing Tools" section.
  • You can access the online version by clicking here.
  • The paper version can be found in the "Marketing Tools" section of "MyNASMM"

If each NASMM member would distribute and collect 10 surveys, imagine the story we could tell!
