Maureen Kirschhofer, CLU, ChFC and Cheryl Canzanella, LUTCF joined hundreds of other professional insurance agents, advisors, brokers, consultants and employee benefit specialists from across the country in Washington, D.C. on May 24 to meet with U.S. Senate and U.S. House members and their staff as part of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors’s Annual Congressional Conference.
Kirschhofer, a local independent advisor with Doc DI and Canzanella, a local Brokerage Director with Mass Mutual, are both members of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, the nation’s oldest and largest insurance and financial services association, which sponsored the event.
They joined NAIFA leaders, including Government Relations Chairs, Association Presidents and Executives from all 50 states; NAIFA President Paul R. Dougherty; NAIFA President-Elect Keith Gillies and members of NAIFA's Board of Trustees for the event.
Congressional Conference attendees talked with their members of Congress about the importance of life & health insurance, annuities, retirement savings, federal tax reform, senior and consumer protection legislation and employee benefits for their clients and the U.S. economy. The life insurance industry pays out $1.7 billion each day and supports 2.5 million jobs.
“We met with Congressman Lawson, Yoho and Rutherford,” said Kirschhofer. “It is vital that we let our Representatives and Senators know about the insurance and financial services that we provide to our clients, who are their constituents. We work with our community’s families, neighbors and businesses every day to plan for the future, save for retirement and protect their assets against financial risks.”
