If you're just getting started with the Stock Selection
Guide, there's no better place to learn than with NAIC
Classic software. NAIC
Classic is NAIC's official program
designed especially for beginners, with interactive help and
an innovative Stock Wiz to help you learn the SSG step-by-
step. With NAIC
Classic, it's easy to start analyzing stocks
and make better investing decisions the NAIC way.
Classic was first introduced, thousands of new
NAIC members have successfully used the program to gain
confidence in the Stock Selection Guide. But now the time
has come to retire the program and clear our shelves of the
last remaining copies.
Hold on -- we're getting rid of NAIC
Classic, you say? Well,
not entirely -- we're merely switching over to NAIC Classic
Plus, which includes all of the SSG forms and stock analysis
tools but adds in the Portfolio Management Guide (PMG) and
Portfolio Evaluation Review Tool (PERT) to aid in managing
the stocks you already own. It's only the original NAIC
Classic that we're phasing out, and we'll continue to
support NAIC Classic if you need help with the program.
If you've never tried any NAIC Software program, this is
good news for you. While supplies are available, you can buy
NAIC Classic at the NAIC member's price of just $59. Later,
if you'd like, you can still upgrade to NAIC Classic Plus at
the special upgrade price to add the portfolio management
tools. If you're happy with NAIC Classic itself, then you
can continue to use the program as it is to select stocks with the
best potential for long-term performance.
Here's a tip passed on by many new investment clubs who have
discovered that NAIC Classic is the perfect way to get all
their members using the SSG. At the NAIC member price of
$59, every club member can purchase a copy of NAIC Classic
and then share their SSG files with each other by e-mail or
on diskette. Then, one member of the club is appointed the
"portfolio manager" for the club and uses NAIC Classic Plus
to prepare the club's portfolio reports for each meeting.
Remember, once you're up to speed with the SSG and NAIC's
methods of selecting quality growth stocks for your
portfolio, you can then upgrade to NAIC Classic Plus to add
the PMG and PERT to the program at a special
price, making NAIC Classic a terrific investment!

Even if you're no longer in school yourself, there's no
reason why your investment club shouldn't make continuing
education a part of every meeting. Consider some of these
strategies to start or strengthen your club's education
Vary your teachers
Consider making the educational portion of your meeting the
responsibility of a different club member every month.
Rotate through your membership and your list of topics so
everyone gets a turn. Even if some members might not be
entirely comfortable with this idea, it's good to let
everyone share responsibility.
Be creative with your choices
Schedule an all-club brainstorming session once or twice a
year and let members throw out ideas for investment-related
topics they'd like to learn more about. Narrow that list
down to the most popular ideas, and use that as your
education curriculum for the next six months or year.
Meet in a different location once or twice a year
Hold your meeting at a local library to investigate the
investment research resources available there. Request a
tour of a local publicly traded company, complete with a
question and answer session with their investor relations
representative. Attend as a group some classes or an
investors fair offered by your local NAIC chapter. Hold
joint meetings with other local clubs once or twice a year,
alternating the hosting and education responsibilities.
Take a break
Put your education program on hold for a month and just
enjoy each other's company. Spend some time getting to know
each other better. Talk informally about why you each
decided to join the club, what you've gained from the club,
and what you still hope to accomplish together.
