NFA announces webinar to debut redesigned Annual Questionnaire

As part of the NFA membership application process, as well as on an annual basis thereafter, NFA requires Members to complete an Annual Questionnaire. NFA recently redesigned the Annual Questionnaire, which will launch on Friday, October 2, 2020.

The redesign was driven by helpful Member feedback and internal reviews. Among other changes, highlights of the new Annual Questionnaire include:

  • Implementation of dynamic question logic, ensuring that Members will no longer need to answer questions that are not relevant to their operations;
  • Consolidation of distinct, registration category-specific questionnaires into one master Annual Questionnaire;
  • Clarification of existing questions and addition of new questions; and
  • Integration with other NFA systems, such as NFA's Exemptions System and Online Registration System.

Note: If you access the system on or after October 2, you will be required to fill out the redesigned Annual Questionnaire, even if you previously began completing the Annual Questionnaire in the old system.

On Tuesday, September 29, 2020 at 9:30 a.m. CT/10:30 a.m. ET, NFA will hold a webinar to educate Members covering the transition to the new system, key differences between the old and new Annual Questionnaire and other helpful information. There is no charge to attend; however, registration is required.

Register for the webinar.

A recording and written transcript of the webinar, as well as a User Guide for the redesigned Annual Questionnaire, will be available on NFA's website in October.

If you have questions, please contact NFA's Information Center (312-781-1410 or 800-621-3570 or
