South Burlington, Vt., resident Michele S. Gatto, president of the Association of Life Insurance Counsel (ALIC), was host to the Association’s 148th annual meeting at Ch?teau ?lan Resort outside of Atlanta May 22-25.
The annual meeting theme: “Charting the Future Amidst Challenge & Change: New Rules, New Regulation and New Risks” has been an integral component in Gatto’s leadership at the ALIC.
“Michele has proven to be accomplished in her ability to reach goals and ensure the organization’s stability and depth,” said Karen Shaff, executive vice president and general counsel of Principal Financial Group and past president of ALIC. “She has substantially preserved and enhanced the hallmarks of the ALIC: professionalism, legal scholarship, and fellowship.” The ALIC was founded in 1913 to promote these principles as the bar association for lawyers in the life insurance industry.
A donation was presented at the annual meeting slated for the Center for Women at St. Michael’s College – Gatto’s chosen organization to receive the donation in recognition of her service as President, presented by the ALIC.
