The 30th Anniversary Celebration of the National Academy of Social Insurance

Washington, District of Columbia, UNITED STATES

Washington, D.C., June 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

What: Senator Bob Dole will be a special guest at the 30th anniversary celebration of the National Academy of Social Insurance.  Our 30th anniversary celebration honors eight living founding Board members of the Academy, who will be passing the torch to a new generation of social insurance leaders. When the National Academy of Social Insurance began operating 30 years ago, Robert M. Ball and the other founders saw a policy environment filled with misinformation and confusion. Today, the Academy remains committed to promoting a robust and constructive exchange of ideas at this critical time in our country’s history – because our leaders cannot afford to overlook or compromise the indispensable role of social insurance in a thriving American society.
