Representatives of fraternal benefit societies who solicit and negotiate insurance contracts are considered to be insurance producers and are subject to the licensing requirements of this chapter, provided that no insurance producer's license is required of:
(1) any officer, employee, or secretary of a fraternal benefit society or of any subordinate lodge or branch who devotes substantially all of that person's time to activities other than the solicitation or negotiation of insurance contracts and who receives no commission or other compensation directly dependent upon the number or amount of contracts solicited or negotiated; or
(2) any agent or representative of a fraternal benefit society who devotes, or intends to devote, less than 50 percent of that person's time to the solicitation and procurement of insurance contracts for that society. Any person who in the preceding calendar year has solicited and procured life insurance in excess of $50,000 face amount, or, in the case of any other kinds of insurance that the society may write, on the persons of more than 25 individuals, and who has received or will receive a commission or other compensation in the total amount of $1,000 or more, is presumed to be devoting, or intending to devote, 50 percent of that person's time to the solicitation or procurement of insurance contracts for that society.
