Ambassadors in Action: Russell Vandevelde and Rep. Terri Sewell

At the luncheon, the conversation stretched from the recently passed SECURE Act, the invaluable role that companies can have in helping their employees save for retirement, and how the business uses of life insurance can help companies recruit and retain key employees in cities like Birmingham. The Congresswoman asked questions about tax reform and its effects on the industry. Russell shared his observations about how it affected his business and clients, while AALU Issues Alliance partners Northwestern Mutual and Protective offered their experience.

Events like these are key to our advocacy efforts at AALU. Great members like Russell across the country set aside their own political beliefs to advocate on behalf of their clients and the work you do, ensuring the promises they’ve made will still be there down the road when families need them the most.
