Reston, VA (PRWEB) March 27, 2017
AALU and GAMA International announced yesterday that the associations will partner on behalf of their members and clients to create alignment among the life insurance distribution community.
The statement was made by Bonnie Godsman, Chief Executive Officer of GAMA, and Marc Cadin, Chief Operating Officer of AALU, on the main stage at GAMA’s LAMP (Leadership & Management Program) conference in Washington, DC.
“AALU’s core strength in advocacy will be game-changing for our producers’ ability to serve their clients in an uncertain marketplace,” Godsman said. “The introduction of their legislative and regulatory expertise will be an incredible asset to GAMA members and their capacity to do business.”
“GAMA has an esteemed history of developing the best in the distribution space,” Cadin responded. “AALU’s mission is to strengthen, grow, promote, and advocate for the life insurance community, and we are excited to work with GAMA members in that endeavor.”
