Melville,NY (PRWEB) June 25, 2015
Joseph M Tavernite, CLF joined hundreds of other professional insurance agents, advisors, brokers, consultants and employee benefit specialists from across the country in Washington, D.C., May 19-20 to meet with U.S. Senate and U.S. House members and staff as part of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors’s Congressional Conference.
Tavernite, a local Managing Director with the Principal Financial Group®, is a member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, which sponsored the event.
Tavernite joined NAIFA leaders, including IFAPAC, APIC and Government Relations Chairs; Association Presidents and Executives; NAIFA President Juli McNeely; President Elect Jules Gaudreau; 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 insurance, annuities, retirement savings, and employee benefits for their clients and the U.S. economy. Life insurance products account for 20 percent of Americans’ long-term savings. The life insurance industry pays out $1.5 billion each day and supports 2.5 million jobs.
“I met with a number of Congressman, local Representatives, and Staff members,” said Tavernite. “It's so important to make these contacts on Capitol Hill and to share with our Representatives and Senators how important the insurance and financial services that we provide to our clients are to families, our communities and our country’s economy.”
