Volunteering and working at Primerica often go hand in hand, and many of our Home Office employees are regular volunteers, both at work and at home in their communities. Sometimes, these employees go above and beyond the call of duty.

Diana Ballard, in Field Supervision, is one of these employees. Earlier this year, she donated one of her kidneys to her 66-year-old husband, Dakota.

It was an arduous two-year process that began when they discovered his history of high blood pressure was linked to kidney failure. All of his siblings were ruled out, so Diana got tested and found out she was a potential match. After extensive blood work and more tests, she was cleared to be a donor for her husband. The transplant took place May 5, 2017.

“I had so many people praying for me here at the Home Office (Duluth, GA),” says Diana. “This company was so supportive and understanding of my schedule and everything that I was going through as a caregiver. I never had to worry about taking time off to be with my husband or to get some rest.”

Fast forward to today, Dakota is doing “phenomenally well with no complications,” but “none of the credit goes to me,” Diana insists.

Diana, who just celebrated her 19th year at Primerica on August 13, is an avid volunteer often heading up annual holiday gift drives in her department, collecting donations during Thanksgiving and working with Habitat for Humanity.

Outside of the volunteer work she does with Primerica, Diana volunteers with an organization called Forever Fed through her church that provides food and clothing to the local area’s needy.

Diana credits Primerica as being the spark by which she got into volunteering.

“This company provides me with so many ways to be able to grow as a person,” she says. “I can volunteer while at work and the company promotes this. They provide each employee with an annual volunteer day, which is a day off to volunteer with an organization of their choice. We can also participate with Meals on Wheels during the workweek. These types of opportunities are a catalyst to being able to do good in our world outside of Primerica.”

To support Hurricane Harvey relief efforts to the residents of Texas and Louisiana, The Primerica Foundation is donating $25,000 to The American Red Cross. 

Primerica CEO Glenn Williams made the following announcement: “Our hearts go out to the hundreds of thousands of people affected by Hurricane Harvey. To support the relief efforts in these areas, The Primerica Foundation is giving $25,000 to our long-time community partner, the American Red Cross.

Primerica teams from across the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico poured into Indianapolis, IN, this past week for the company’s best Convention yet.

The massive three-day event, held June 14-17, took place in the downtown city center at the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium.

A biennial event, the Primerica Convention includes motivating training sessions, informative workshops and recognition of successful field leaders who are meeting the needs of Main Street clients.

Glenn Williams, Primerica CEO, said, “Our Company and our Field Leadership have experienced a period of unprecedented growth since our 2015 Convention. At that meeting, we set several ambitious goals to achieve before our 2017 event – I’m proud that we’ve met or exceeded every one of them. I’m particularly excited about the growth in the size of sales force over the past 24 months: As of May 31, 2017, our sales force has exceeded 120,000 life insurance licensed representatives. These men and women are committed to doing what’s right for their clients and for their teammates, every day.

“Our sales force growth comes at a time when our clients need our help the most. It’s widely accepted that there is a significant life insurance protection gap in North America with some estimates reaching as high as $12 trillion. Additionally, studies show that most families are not saving enough for retirement. Our sales force and Field Leadership stand ready to help more families take control of their finances and make a real difference in the lives of our clients.”
