AALU brought about 1,000 of some of the smartest, most sophisticated financial services advisors around to Washington last week to try to sell Congress on the idea of promoting retirement security measures.
The Washington-based group offered a full slate of conference sessions, but the core of the event was sending about 400 of the attendees out to about 260 meetings with senators, representatives and congressional staffers.

AALU members sought support for H.R. 1007, the Retirement Enhancement and Savings Act of 2019 (RESA) bill, and H.R. 1994, the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement Act of 2019 (SECURE Act) bill.
Several lawmakers came on over to speak at the AALU meeting. The list of lawmaker speakers included House Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal, D-Mass.
