Rhonda Knudson joined hundreds of other professional insurance agents, advisors, brokers, consultants and employee benefit specialists from across the country in Washington, D.C., May 20-21 to meet with U.S. Senate and U.S. House members and staff as part of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors’ Congressional Conference.
Knudson, a local Agent with American Family Insurance, is a member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, which sponsored the event.
Knudson joined NAIFA leaders, including IFAPAC, APIC and Government Relations Chairs; Association Presidents and Executives; NAIFA CEO Dr. Susan Waters; NAIFA President John Nichols; and members of NAIFA’s Board of Trustees for the event. Congressional Conference attendees talked to their members of Congress about the importance of life insurance, annuities and employee benefits to the 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 Senator Roberts and Moran and our four State Representatives,” said Knudson “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.”
