NASMM Launches New Online Marketplace
NASMM is pleased to announce the launch of our brand new Online market place — an online store that provides a one-stop-shop for accessing over a million products and services from a diverse portfolio of supplier partners.

These products and services offer aggressively negotiated pricing and terms and conditions than most of our members could likely secure on their own. And when you shop the NASMM eMarketplace, the suppliers return a modest portion of their profits back to NASMM, providing valuable funding toward fulfilling our collective mission.

The eMarketplace has features and functions designed to save you time and money:

  • Catalog-based search function lets you buy like a procurement professional
  • User-created shopping lists provide easy access to commonly purchased items
  • Powerful reporting tools help you better manage spending
  • Single checkout process makes it quick and easy to buy from multiple suppliers

To begin shopping, simply visit the "Business Solutions" page of "MyNASMM" and click on the NASMM Marketplace option.

To Bequeath a Burden
Many of us grew up with the notion we should leave heirlooms and other possessions for our children and grandchildren; a physical legacy of who came before us and where we came from. Not all of us, though, have the ability to objectively recognize what a "good inheritance" really is.

7 Ways to Connect with Your Elderly Clients
The benefits of communicating effectively with your senior clients are clear: it helps them gain control of their financial lives and ensure their legacy. In business terms, it can position you to help the whole family, not just one generation. But the art of communicating with the elderly takes practice, and it's more complicated than you think.

Forget millennials: Seniors are poised to reshape the housing market
Today's parents or grandparents will be part of a historically large surge in the senior population poised to transform the housing market, and, according to many caregivers, architects, and researchers, challenge our system of low-income assistance. More broadly, this surge may change our attitudes toward aging. Solutions will require not only more support from state and local governments, but also a rethink of how we design spaces for this population.

The Difficulty of Holding Other People's Pasts in Your Hands
I still have some leftovers of my mother's life, although she died 15 years ago. Books, files, knick-knacks and doodads. And some of my husband's old books and files have yet to be dealt with, although he has also been gone from the house for 15 years, first to a nursing home, and three years ago to the end of his life.
