Our AALU Ambassadors are off to a great start, building on the tremendous momentum of their 2019 successes. Over the past few weeks, nearly 200 Ambassadors have enrolled in the program, contributed over $200,000 to AALU PAC and campaigns, and held over a dozen meetings with key lawmakers so far this year.
In early February, Susan Anthony of Penn Mutual in Georgia, met with her congressman, Rep. Barry Loudermilk [R-GA-11], who serves on the House Financial Services Committee. Susan talked with the congressman for an hour about the financial security profession, the campaign, cyber-security. The congressman is a ranking member of the cyber-security taskforce within the Financial Services committee and was interested to hear about how Penn Mutual trains their employees on cyber-security issues.
Just over a week later, Rep. Patrick McHenry [R-NC-10] toured the Northwestern Mutual office of Richard Worrell in Charlotte, NC. Richard and the congressman, who is the ranking member of the House Financial Services Committee, discussed the merger of AALU and GAMA, tax reform, and the uses of long-term care products.
On February 19th, Jeffrey Dollarhide met with Rep. David Schweikert [R-AZ-6] to continue to build upon their relationship. They chatted about hybrid life insurance products, Medicare supplement plans, and several other topics.
On the same day in the great state of Montana, Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) visited with Andrea Wass and the Northwestern team in Bozeman. The senator held a roundtable discussion with advisors to discuss the fiduciary rule and importance of open communication lines between lawmakers and their constituents.
It is important to note that these are only a handful of the meetings that have taken place over the past few weeks, and that many of our Ambassadors are hard at work educating lawmakers across the country about the noble work you do. Join them by signing up for the Ambassador program today, and make a positive impact on America’s financial security!
