An insurance marketing consortium has landed a major speaker for a fall gathering.

LIMRA International, Windsor, Conn., says former President William Clinton has agreed to speak in October at the group’s 2006 annual meeting, in New York.

The theme of the meeting will be “It’s Time To Shine,” and sessions will focus on how insurance and financial firms can serve the financial needs of baby boomers who are approaching retirement, LIMRA says.

Clinton is an appropriate speaker for the meeting because he is the first baby boomer to be elected president, LIMRA says.
